PSE&G Prepares for Winter Storm

Extra personnel and equipment at the ready

(NEWARK, N.J. – March 13, 2017) Public Service Electric and Gas Company (PSE&G), New Jersey’s largest electric and gas utility, is preparing for the approaching storm system that is predicted to bring heavy snow and strong winds to the Northeast on Tuesday. 

“The amount of snow and high winds associated with this storm may bring down trees and power lines,” said John Latka, senior vice president of electric and gas operations for PSE&G. “We take every storm with the potential for outages seriously, and have additional personnel scheduled and on standby, with auxiliary equipment at the ready.”

The utility also has extra personnel on hand to respond as quickly as possible and handle emergency requests. Both PSE&G’s appliance service business and call centers are prepared to respond to customer “no heat” calls as temperatures remain low during the next several days.
