PSEG Power operates one of the most balanced portfolios in the country – both in terms of fuel mix and market segment (baseload units, load-following units and peaking units). PSEG Power operates a fuel-diverse fleet consisting mainly of nuclear and natural gas plants, with a growing renewable portfolio. Our plants are located in New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, Pennsylvania and Maryland.
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.
On a recent overcast weekend, PSEG employees and their families came together for a unique experience. They learned how to stay safe around electricity and gas – and had some fun in the process. The first-ever “Family Preparedness Day” was sponsored by one of our newest employee business resource groups, SERT (Supporting Emergency Responders Together).
“I never saw a discontented tree. They grip the ground as though they liked it, and, though fast rooted, they travel about as far as we do.” ~John Muir, American author and naturalist
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
The picture of the meter reader training class in 1930 is striking in many ways. The instructor is in a three-piece suit, and all the soon-to-be meter readers are wearing suits and ties, as well. Instructors today at PSEG are not dressed so formally, and the meter readers have traded in their suits for another uniform: PSE&G flame-resistant shirts and khaki pants.

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. These trucks play a critical role in making PSE&G one of the nation’s most reliable electric utilities and, more importantly, keeping lineworkers safe. Continue reading
Hurricane Irma caused catastrophic damage across the Caribbean and Florida – to homes, businesses and infrastructure. In response, utility crews from around the country, even including Canada, were called to serve in what became the largest U.S. power restoration team ever assembled. PSE&G crews from New Jersey and Long Island were among the heroes who braved heat and humidity to restore power throughout Florida. With our crews safely back home, we sat down with PSE&G’s own mutual aid expert, Ernie Cadiz, to get a better understanding of how this process works.
Many times kids can identify hazards and call attention to unsafe situations better than adults because they rely on their instincts and are quick to point out something that seems wrong. That’s why they make the perfect audience for a talk on gas safety.
Most people don’t think about the fact that there are more than 20 million miles of underground pipes in the United States. But in the Garden State alone, PSE&G has 35,000 miles of gas lines running just inches below our feet.
Do your kids get into everything? I know mine does! Continue reading
