They have more in common than meets the eye
With a wife who is a fitness instructor, Steve Resnick has some “interesting” conversations at home about his third-generation, family business – which sells candy, tobacco and thousands of other products to convenience stores in New Jersey, seven other states and the District of Columbia.

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.

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
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
In two words, what does it mean to be a veteran working at PSEG: keeping promises.
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. Today, Baker is a full-time street mechanic – part of the growing PSE&G team replacing more than 500 miles of aging gas pipes throughout New Jersey. “I was looking for a new challenge for myself, a new skill,” said Baker, who previously worked as a plumber. PSE&G has always had a reputation for providing steady jobs with strong pay and benefits, he added. Continue reading
What do “Ghostbusters” and PSE&G street inspectors have in common? They’re both searching for invisible enemies, need special detection equipment, and keep the public safe. The difference is that at PSE&G, we’re not looking for ghosts. We’re searching for leaking gas on our buried pipes.
I was a junior at Brown University in May 1980 when I climbed onto a bus for the 100-mile trip to Seabrook, New Hampshire, where one of the nation’s largest nuclear power plants was being built. I was one of thousands of young people who were there to protest the spread of nuclear power – less than a year after the meltdown at Three Mile Island.
We tell our children to dream big and go far. We would be wise to also tell them that they can do both in New Jersey.
New Jersey is home to some of the best colleges and universities in the nation. CNBC pointed specifically to our higher education assets in its latest ranking of the Top States for Business. And the State’s elementary and secondary schools are consistently ranked amongst the country’s best, most recently by Wallet Hub. Continue reading
I believe that the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. is grounded by a single dream and promise he sought hard to help Americans achieve. The dream is of civil justice and equality for all. Today, we can all honor this legacy by keeping his dream alive. More than 50 years since he spoke of this dream, we are carrying it forward within the walls of PSEG, as a journey of inclusion.
