As a mother of two young children, I value outdoor play time. But until recently, I’ve had to drive to other communities in search of a safe, outdoor space for my kids to run around and play.
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.
For more than a century, New Jersey’s nation-leading infrastructure provided the foundation for a state that achieved great leaps forward in commerce, industry and transportation. Continue reading
There are many new models of electric cars flooding the market, from pure electrics (like the Nissan LEAF, Chevy Bolt or Tesla) to electric cars that also sport gas electric generators so they may run on duel fuels (like the Chevy Bolt Volt or BMW I3). Still others boast a small electric engine that takes you 10 to 15 miles and then switch to a gas engine (like the plug-in Prius or Ford Focus ). This is just a start.

Planning that end of summer getaway? Even when you’re on vacation, your home still uses electricity. And whether you’re relaxing on the beach, road tripping across the country or hiking in the mountains, stressing about energy costs should be the last thing on your mind.
In two words, what does it mean to be a veteran working at PSEG: keeping promises.
Cue Martha and the Vandellas! Temperatures are forecast to be in the high ’80s and low ’90s across New Jersey. While we often casually throw around the term “heat wave,” there are some specific requirements for weather to qualify as such–and the end of this week just might make the cut.
Detours are an inevitable byproduct of a critical project that’s making our gas service safer and more reliable. PSE&G is speeding up the replacement of its aging gas infrastructure. Our crews are in more than 150 towns digging in streets and replacing pipes this year alone.
