How we’re putting our vision into practice:
using less energy
In 2018, PSE&G proposed its Clean Energy Future program, which is designed to help New Jersey achieve its clean energy and climate goals. Its centerpiece is an energy efficiency program that can help every residential and business customer reduce their energy consumption, shrink their carbon footprint and lower their energy bills. On Sept. 23, the New Jersey BPU approved the energy efficiency program; read more about energy efficiency here.
using cleaner energy
For well over a decade, PSEG Power has had one of the lowest carbon emissions intensity rates, 50% less than the national average, thanks in large part to the nuclear plants in South Jersey that account for 85% of New Jersey’s carbon-free energy. In 2021, PSEG announced its vision to achieve net-zero carbon emissions by 2030, including scope 1 and 2 emissions across its utility operations and the transition to nearly 100% carbon-free power generation.
reliability and resiliency
PSEG’s electric and gas infrastructure are the foundation for one of the most reliable, resilient utilities in the nation. We continue to invest in infrastructure to ensure that our energy network remains effective. PSEG’s Gas System Modernization Program, for example, reduces methane emissions by replacing aging cast-iron and steel pipes with more durable plastic. Our Energy Strong program increases resiliency by raising critical electric and gas infrastructure to prevent disruptions during extreme weather. Our transmission investments maintain reliability and enhance the resiliency of the electric grid.
