When it comes to fending off the most damaging impacts of our changing climate, energy efficiency has to be the No. 1 priority. It provides New Jersey and our nation the most timely, impactful and cost-effective way to meet drastic carbon-reduction goals. Continue reading
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.

High school graduation and the Fourth of July parade both could have been interrupted in Chatham Borough last year had PSE&G not been accommodating and professional while undertaking Gas System Modernization Program upgrades, according to borough officials.
When PSE&G replaced aging gas pipes in the Borough of Westwood as part of its Gas System Modernization Program, the work took crews right in front of The Iron Horse Restaurant on Washington Avenue. Needless to say, The Iron Horse owner Lee Tremble was concerned about how this work would impact his business. After all, closing the restaurant or blocking pedestrians would mean losing customers and money. Much to his surprise, that wasn’t the case.
“It was pretty much an extraordinary experience,” said Tremble. “PSE&G worked around my schedule. The crew started work early and made sure to finish their work by the time I opened each day at 11:30 a.m. I never lost one minute of operation. And when the first bill came after the upgrade, the gas part of my bill went down because everything was running more efficiently. Everything PSE&G said they were going to do, came to be.”
When Judy Cariani was notified last June that PSE&G planned to replace natural gas lines in her Springfield neighborhood, she admits that she was skeptical.

After Superstorm Sandy devastated portions of New Jersey nearly six years ago, PSE&G received approval for major upgrades to its electric and gas systems to make them more resilient to this kind of severe storm. Since 2014, under our Energy Strong program, we have raised or eliminated 26 electrical switching and substations, replaced 240 miles of low-pressure gas pipes in flood-prone areas and reinforced electrical pathways that serve critical customers such as hospitals, waste water treatment facilities and pumping stations, among others.

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.

A 64-year-old, 12-inch, cast iron gas main cracked in Paramus last week. Traffic snarled on Rt. 17 while we made emergency repairs…again. That was the third time in two years we’ve had to patch up this section of pipe. Installation of a replacement gas main is underway. Continue reading
