Two dozen Puget Sound Energy natural gas employees headed to New York on Dec. 4 to help restore heat for customers on Long Island faced with temperatures dipping into the 20s.
PSE employees will work with National Grid to replace natural gas meter sets damaged nearly five weeks ago by Superstorm Sandy; they also will inspect and relight equipment and appliances inside homes and businesses.
PSE’s team of 21 technicians and three supervisors will work for 2½ weeks and return home the weekend before Christmas. They will join natural gas crews from other utilities around the country.
PSE received the mutual aid request from the Northeast Gas Association to help restore natural gas service for the storm-damaged communities on Long Island.
