PSE&G readies for another arctic blast

Public Service Electric and Gas Co. (PSE&G), New Jersey's largest electric and gas utility, is preparing for another round of freezing temperatures and accumulating snow that will affect its service territory beginning January 21.

Snow, by itself, does not pose a serious problem for utilities, but heavy snow, icing and strong winds can increase the possibility of downed wires and associated power outages. Vehicles striking utility poles can also cause wires to come down. To respond to any electric outages, PSE&G has additional equipment and personnel on hand.

The utility is 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 heating requests.
