Con Edison Asks Customers In Parts Of Southeastern Westchester To Conserve, Reduces Voltage 8 Percent
Con Edison is asking some of its customers in the southeast portion of Westchester County to conserve energy while company crews repair equipment. Con Edison has reduced voltage in the area by 8 percent to protect equipment and maintain service as crews make repairs.
The area includes Rye, Rye Brook, Port Chester, Harrison, the Town of Mamaroneck and the Village of Mamaroneck. It covers 40,000 customers.
Con Edison has asked customers in these areas not to use energy-intensive appliances such as washers, dryers, and microwaves until crews complete repairs. The company also asks customers to limit unnecessary use of air conditioning. If you have two air conditioners, use only one and set it to the highest comfortable temperature.
Customers can report outages and check service restoration status at www.conEd.com/reportoutage, or with our mobile app for iOS or Android devices, or by calling 1-800-75-CONED (1-800-752-6633). When calling, customers should report whether their neighbors also have lost power. Customers who report outages will receive updates with their estimated restoration times as they become available.
The equipment problems in these neighborhoods have no effect on the rest of the Con Edison system. The company is in constant communication with the Westchester County Department of Emergency Management.
