White sandy beaches, lush greenery and turquoise waters don’t stay that way for long when a tropical storm or hurricane is barreling down on your island. Yet my experience with Tropical Storm Arthur in 1990, in my position as assistant information technologist in Grenada’s National Water and Sewage Authority, is just one major incident in the past 25 years that has fueled my passion for helping create the energy company of the future at PSE&G.

Driving around New Jersey, you have undoubtedly passed by a maintained electric transmission line right-of-way, which tends to stand out among otherwise forested or developed landscape.
Recent news of natural gas explosions in parts of the United States has left many residents wondering if they are at risk. After such incidents, our gas technicians and inspectors in the field receive many more questions than usual. Our company prioritizes safety and we work hard to protect the communities we serve, as well as our systems, so we’re able to provide many reassurances. Continue reading
Today’s smartphones would baffle Alexander Graham Bell, while today’s utility systems would look familiar to Thomas Edison. Our electric infrastructure has hardly changed since Edison’s influence at the start of the 20th century. That’s about to change. The way people use electricity and gas is being transformed thanks to technological innovations that are similar to ones that we have seen in other industries.
One of the most important missions for utilities going forward will be to help their customers develop low-cost, energy efficient options. Reducing the consumption of electricity and natural gas will provide a host of benefits – it will give customers access to new energy efficient technologies while also lowering their utility bills and reducing pollution and environmental impacts for years to come.

Have you ever answered your phone and had that immediate feeling in your gut that something just wasn’t right? They say, always follow your gut. Continue reading
My family thinks I am obsessed with trees. Perhaps that’s because I moved them into a home that has a 48-acre arboretum directly behind it. Maybe it’s because they constantly hear me offering little details about bark, or leaves or the branch system. Did you know, for example, that each branch operates independently yet for the common good of the whole – using its leaves to feed itself and then sending reserves to the root system to be used by the rest of the tree? Yes, I love trees. Continue reading
Recently, Stevens Institute of Technology and PSEG held a reception at Liberty Science Center to celebrate our longstanding partnership and PSEG’s underwriting of Stevens’ innovative SURE House. Late last year, the PSEG Foundation awarded a new $1.5 million grant to further strengthen academic excellence at the university and take our partnership to a new level. Continue reading
Since Sept. 11, 2001, many men and women have volunteered to join the U.S. military. In fact, today’s armed services are composed of all volunteers, unlike the past when there was a universal draft.
It was a cold, spring day (in a spring with too many cold, spring days) when nearly 100 Newark students converged on PSEG’s corporate headquarters. They learned about teamwork and in-demand jobs in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math), heard from PSEG employees about their own career paths, and met and interacted with students from other Newark high schools. It was a great day for the students but also for more than two dozen PSEG volunteers who spent the day at the Jr. Achievement Career Success workshop. Continue reading
