  1. With graduation season and summer here, PSEG has released a statement on the dangers of Mylar balloons flying in the sky. “While they are festive, fun and beautiful, we want the public to know that metallic balloons also conduct electricity. If they become loose and come into contact with a power line or other electrical equipment, it could cause power outages, fire, and possible injury.“said Michael Sullivan, vice president of transmission and distribution for PSEG Long Island.
