Staten Islanders Asked to Turn Off Air Conditioning in Heat Wave - Presented by: The Aol. On Network

But Con Edison wasn’t kidding when the utility company sent out robo-calls to more than 60,000 Staten Islanders, asking residents to conserve power by turning off their AC. “They said we should cut down on our power because there would be brownouts in our area,” Anita Reid said.
