Storm Alert

With the fourth Nor’easter in nearly three weeks right on our door step, we have hundreds of crews positioned across the region should the storm impact our system. Remember to keep safety a priority – before, during and after the storm. Be sure to have a supply of bottled drinking water and canned food handy. Power problems can sometimes interrupt public water supply systems or disable well pumps. It is also a good idea to check on elderly family members, neighbors and others who may need assistance during an outage period.

Whether digital or dial, learning how your meter works can help you better understand your overall energy usage.

How to Read Your Meter

Wondering what all those dials mean? Reading gas and electric meters is easier than you might think. 

Distributed Generation

Solar, wind, CHP, hydro, and other new technologies may produce some or all of the electricity you need.
