PSEG Long Island has installed a webcam to offer a sneak peek into the lives of the local osprey. Employees work throughout the year to balance PSEG Long Island’s commitment to deliver consistent, safe delivery of power for its customers with its commitment to being a good environmental steward. Providing a safe nesting area for the osprey away from vital electrical infrastructure helps maintain strong electric service reliability.
PSEG Long Island and its dedicated team, with the guidance and support from environmental partners, have identified best practices for when to move a nest, and when to create alternative safer nest locations for the ospreys. Workers have safely relocated two dozen osprey nests in order to ensure the birds are out of harm’s way from high voltage systems, and taken actions to make nests safe in place at an additional eight locations.
