Electricity Distribution & Generation


Working on an electricity distribution line.

Through our electricity distribution networks we serve approximately 3.4 million electricity customers over a network of approximately 116,700 circuit kilometres (72,500 miles) in New England and New York.

We are one of the leading electricity distribution service providers in the northeastern US, as measured by energy delivered, and one of the largest utilities in the US, as measured by the number of electricity distribution customers.
Our electricity distribution system spans upstate New York, Massachusetts, Rhode Island and New Hampshire, which, together with the system on Long Island owned by the Long Island Power Authority (LIPA), provides energy to homes, small businesses, and large commercial and industrial enterprises.

We are responsible for building, operating and maintaining our electricity distribution networks in New England and New York, and LIPA’s transmis-sion and distribution networks on Long Island. Our work is essential to the economies of the regions in which we operate and contributes to the com-fort and well-being of the millions of people who depend on our services.

We strive to provide a reliable, high quality distribution network to our customers. In all that we do, we are committed to safeguarding our global environment for future generations.


On Long Island, we are responsible for managing the electricity transmission and distribution system on behalf of LIPA. The LIPA service territory consists of most of Nassau and Suffolk counties on Long Island, together with the Rockaway Peninsula which forms part of Queens County (part of New York City). It covers approximately 3,200 square kilometres, encom-passing nearly 90% of Long Island’s total land area. LIPA owns approximately 2,100 kilometres (1,300 miles) of transmission line facilities that deliver power to approximately 177 substations in its electricity system. From these substations, approximately 24,100 circuit kilometres (15,000 miles) of distribution facilities distribute electricity to 1.1 million customers.

Our responsibilities include managing the day-to-day operations and main-tenance of LIPA’s transmission and distribution system, providing services to LIPA’s retail customers, purchasing and selling electricity on behalf of LIPA and managing the delivery of the energy that we produce under contract to LIPA.
