Proving the value of our momentum to modernize  


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.

Four years ago this past weekend, Superstorm Sandy barreled into New Jersey, taking an enormous toll on families, homes and businesses.

A Stronger Gas Network – And for Keith, Kyle and Matt, New Jobs

Seven months ago, Keith Baker of Irvington logged onto PSE&G’s website to pay his monthly electric bill, and clicked on the “Careers” button out of curiosity.

PSE&G has always had a reputation for providing steady jobs with strong pay and benefits, he added. Continue reading
