PSE&G calls for energy efficiency January 28

Due to another round of frigid temperatures and increased electric demand, PSE&G customers are asked to conserve electricity, if health permits, on January 28, especially from 6 a.m. to 10 a.m. and from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.

The conservation request is being made to electric utilities throughout the region by PJM Interconnection, the electricity grid operator for more than 61 million people in 13 states and the District of Columbia.  PJM continues to carefully monitor power supplies, and will do everything possible to keep power flowing in the region.

PSE&G's all-time peak winter demand for electricity was 7,195 MW set on February 5, 2007. Although the January 28 projected peak will be close, the utility does not expect to exceed the all-time demand.

The utility is also closely monitoring its gas system and taking steps to ensure it can meet the demands of customers. These steps include maintaining and adjusting pressure at various points in our system. PSE&G also has extra gas personnel on hand to respond as quickly as possible and handle emergency.
