PSEG Long Range Plan


Escerpts from a communication from Julia Bovey:


As the newly named Director of the Department of Public Service Long Island Office ........

My  commencement  as Director coincides with the  first annual  submission by PSEG-LI of its Utility
2.0  Long Range Plan  (Utility 2.0 Plan).  This is particularly significant because as the development of energy  efficiency,  distributed  generation,  advanced  grid  and  related  technologies  and  programs  is  a priority of the Department of Public Service and New York State.

All of us at the DPS-Long Island office are eager to hear from the public regarding their thoughts on
PSEG-LI's  Utility  2.0  plan,  which  can  be  read  online  here:



I  anticipate  the  continued  evolution  of  the  Utility  2.0 Long  Range  Plan,  based  in  part  on  feedback  and  comments  from  the  public,  to  improve  system efficiency,  increase  customer  choice,  and  increase  development  and  implementation  of  clean generation and energy efficiency technologies.


As  described  in  this  notice,  please  find  the  schedule  for  the  DPS-LI  review  of  the  Utility  2.0  Plan pursuant to the requirements of the LIPA Reform Act. The  aggressive  schedule  will enable  the  DPSLI  to  complete its review and provide its recommendations  to  the LIPA Board of Trustees  (BOT)  in early November.  The BOT can consider the recommendations and  act on the Utility 2.0 Plan prior  to December.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact my office 516.490.2345.


Julia Bovey, Director
Department of Public Service, Long Island Office
