Long Island Power Authority

 Home » Utility Information » LIPA

The Long Island Power Authority, better known as LIPA, is the sole owner of the electric grid in Nassau and Suffolk counties. It operated as a non-profit municipal electric utility under a certification provided by New York State after becoming Long Island’s primary service provider in 1998, having acquired the Long Island Lighting Company’s (LILCO) transmission and distribution service. 1.1 million residents of Nassau County, Suffolk County, Queens and the Rockaway Peninsula depend on LIPA’s gird.

In December 2011, following major damages caused by Tropical Storm Irene, LIPA forged an agreement with New Jersey-based utility provider PSEG to allow the private company to manage and operate the Long Island power grid for a length of 10 years, beginning after a preliminary 2-year transition period. PSEG Long Island took over day-to-day operations on January 1, 2014, effectively privatizing the Island’s electric utility, while LIPA continued to be the owner of the grid and holder of its debt.
