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.

Compare and clean up.

Heating with natural gas is typically more affordable than heating with oil or propane. Not only that, but today’s natural gas furnaces have higher heating efficiency, so they may reduce your carbon emissions along with your energy bills.
