Going Underground: PSEG Will Bury Lines if EH Coughs Up

New, 7 comments

Well, isn't that nice of them. PSEG, which has annoyed residents of East Hampton in the past few weeks by placing enormous transmission lines along residential streets, has agreed to bury the lines if town officials pay for it. Cost will be about $30 million. "PSEG and the town are looking into using some of the $1.4 billion given to New York State by Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to upgrade Long Island's electrical grid." At present, this project doesn't qualify for that funding, so how they're going to apply for it is unknown. Alternatively, taxpayers will absorb the costs.
