Over the past 17 years, our dedicated employees have volunteered countless hours spreading love throughout our communities. From services for youth to low-income families to schools, emergency responders, arts and animal rescue, the nonprofits our employees dedicate themselves to are as diverse as the employees who support them.

Now let’s meet our Award of Excellence, $10,000 recipient – the PSEG St. John’s Soup Kitchen Team.
“To develop the state of New Jersey and make it a better place to live.”
When Thomas N. McCarter uttered those words after taking the helm of the Public Service Corp. in 1903, he was thinking about how to meet New Jerseyans’ growing need for more modern and efficient sources of heat, light and (at that time) transportation.
The recently passed federal tax reform legislation included a reduction in the corporate income tax rate, from 35 percent to 21 percent. Dan Cregg, CFO of PSEG, answers questions on how this will impact PSEG. Continue reading
I work in a small high school in Gloucester County, New Jersey, with about 100 students in each grade. As a student assistance counselor, I typically help students with mental health issues or drug and alcohol abuse, but I also counsel students who are struggling with sexual orientation. I try my best to connect them with community resources so they have support after graduation. Since my formal training in this area is limited, I’ve been looking for different ways to increase my ability to help these students.
The holidays are here! While you’re celebrating with family and friends, it’s also important to keep some safety tips in mind.
“We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give.” — Winston S. Churchill
Hundreds of companies around the world, including PSEG, will celebrate #GivingTuesday on Nov. 28.
Between buying gifts and hosting parties, it’s no secret that the holidays can be an expensive time of year. But, did you know that changes to your cooking routine can help you save money in the kitchen? For example, slow cookers, pots, toaster ovens or warming plates use about half the energy of the average electric stove.
- Preheat the oven to the exact temperature you need. The oven won’t heat up any faster at a higher setting.
- Put lids on pots and pans to prevent heat loss.
- Turn off the oven 10 minutes early – the food will keep cooking as long as the door stays closed.
- No peeking! Whenever you open the oven door, the temperature drops by about 25 degrees.
- Always use glass or ceramic dishes if possible. They retain heat better and cook food faster.
Last but not least – when you’re ready to clean up, always make sure your dishwasher is full before running it. It’s more energy efficient.
Have a safe and happy holiday!
The picture of the meter reader training class in 1930 is striking in many ways. The instructor is in a three-piece suit, and all the soon-to-be meter readers are wearing suits and ties, as well. Instructors today at PSEG are not dressed so formally, and the meter readers have traded in their suits for another uniform: PSE&G flame-resistant shirts and khaki pants.
Since Superstorm Sandy left millions of New Jerseyans without power five years ago, PSE&G has completed strategic infrastructure investments that, in the event of another Sandy-like storm, will keep critical equipment out of floodwaters’ way and the lights on for many. Continue reading

They are a common sight around the company and across the state. PSE&G’s fleet of more than 400 bucket trucks travel tens of thousands of miles annually doing routine maintenance work, installing new equipment and completing storm restoration repairs. These trucks play a critical role in making PSE&G one of the nation’s most reliable electric utilities and, more importantly, keeping lineworkers safe. Continue reading
