How long will the voltage reduction last?
The reduction will last until the New York Independent System Operator (NYISO) or the Long Island Power Authority (LIPA) can achieve a balance between capacity and demand. If voltage reductions are necessary, they will typically be during the period of 12 p.m. to 8 p.m., or shorter.
