Con Ed: Mid and Lower Manhattan customers to conserve electricity

Posted: Updated:
MYFOXNY.COM -

Con Edison is urging customers in the areas of Mid- and Lower Manhattan to conserve energy the best way possible while crews work to reinforce the company's underground systems. 

Due to the outages caused by Hurricane Sandy, the company says customers can help by refraining from using non-essential appliances, such as washers and dryers. Con Ed also is in contact with building owners to limit their use of certain elevator banks or other equipment. 

Con Ed is reinforcing its underground system and customer cooperation will help ensure uninterrupted electric service. The affected is area is south of 39th Street on the east side of Manhattan and south of 31st Street on the west side. 

Some buildings in the affected area are unable to receive Con Edison electrical service because their own equipment was damaged by the storm and needs repair.

    It appears the subway bedbug problem we've been reporting is getting worse. Commuters already have to contend with sweltering platforms, scurrying rats and packed train cars, and now there's another transit woe: fear of bedbugs.
