Stray voltage tests
NYSEG’s Oneonta Division is among the areas where the utility and RG&E, subsidiaries of Iberdrola USA, are testing the power infrastructure for stray voltage, as required by the New York State Public Service Commission.
“The safety of our employees and customers is our top priority every day,” said Mark S. Lynch, president of NYSEG and RG&E. “Since 2005, stray voltage testing has been a regular practice to help us ensure public safety.”
