NYSEG reminds residents to conserve energy

A muggy and sticky week in the region and throughout much of the Northeast is putting a strain on electricity providers, but NYSEG is reporting good news to its customers.

The utility company expects to meet the energy needs for the summer, but advises customers to avoid the heat as much as possible and stay hydrated.

NSYEG President Mark Lynch says they’re closely monitoring the weather and the stress on the delivery system and are prepared to respond any issues.

The company advises keeping curtains and blinds closed on hot, sunny days, while closing windows during the hottest parts of the day to keep the heat out.
