The Township of East Brunswick stretches across more than 22 miles of central New Jersey real estate and is home to a diverse population of 47,000 who have cultivated a municipality with an outstanding school system and a strong mix of housing, commercial and recreational options.
The East Brunswick Public Library helps to anchor this thriving community with more than 335,000 patrons passing through the doors annually. The library is one of the busiest municipal library buildings in the state of New Jersey. It has achieved national recognition for the quality of its collections, programs and services, as well as continually being named as one of the “Best Public Libraries in Central New Jersey” by readers of the Home News Tribune.
Upgrading major appliances like a fridge, range or washer/dryer could set you back thousands of dollars, which is why most of us don’t replace those items until we absolutely have to. When we do, we face a tough choice – go with a highly rated yet cheaper, inefficient model or invest more for an energy-efficient product.
The challenges presented by climate change are real and growing more apparent every day. As an energy company, PSEG has a unique opportunity to rise to these challenges while serving our customers, our communities – and the planet.
Our customers will always depend on the safe, reliable, around-the-clock energy we provide, but we know that won’t be enough anymore – we must also be champions of clean energy.
In this video, PSEG Chairman, President and CEO Ralph Izzo reaffirms our commitment to be part of a clean energy future.
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.
Summit Plaza in Jersey City, New Jersey, is a four-building, 483-unit apartment complex that is home to mostly low-income families.
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.

“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.
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 modern utility faces a new reality: Customers’ demands are changing. They want more reliability, they want more resilient power, they want cleaner energy and they want access to smart technology to better understand their energy use – all while keeping bills affordable.
