High Temps, Brownouts in Brooklyn
There could be brownouts today. According to WNYC radio, the temperatures could reach 100. I got an 8AM robo call from Con Edison informing me that they are doing repairs in Park Slope but that if we experience a dimming of electricity or brownouts to call: 1-800-752-6633.
According to McBrooklyn, they have reduced the power by 5%, which may cause brownouts to many Brooklyn neighborhoods. “More than a thousand customers were without power at 10PM Wednesday night, but that number is fluctuating.”
Park Slope is definitely one of the voltage reduction neighborhoods. They are suggesting that we reduce our usage and not use dishwashers, washing machines, dryers and even air conditioners unless absolutely necessary.
