Big power outages Sunday afternoon affected 1,200 people, reported NY1.

The outages began at midday from North to South shores between Sleight and Page Avenues.

ConEdison responded to the problems, and NY1 reported power was restored around 6:30 pm.

The power outages corresponded with one of the hottest days yet of the summer.


An advisory released Sunday morning by ConEdison recommended setting AC units to the highest comfortable temperature, and said that every degree lower the thermostat is set, energy bills rise by 6 percent.

ConEdison also advised residents to run appliances like ovens, washing machines and dryers and dishwashers in the early morning or late at night during cooler temperatures.
