President and Chief Operating Officer
William Levis is president and chief operating officer of PSEG Power, a position he’s held since June 2007. PSEG Power is a major, unregulated independent power producer in the U.S. with three main subsidiaries: PSEG Nuclear, PSEG Fossil, and PSEG Energy Resources and Trade (ER&T).
PSEG Power operates one of the most balanced portfolios in the country, both in terms of fuel mix and market segment (based load units, load following units and peaking units). Its low-cost, load following fleet is geographically well positioned in competitive markets. Its 15,548 MWs represent a diverse fuel mix which includes 52 percent natural gas, 24 percent nuclear; 15 percent coal, 8 percent oil; and 1 percent pumped storage.
PSEG Nuclear operates the Salem and Hope Creek nuclear generating stations in New Jersey and is a part owner of the Peach Bottom generating station in Pennsylvania. Under Levis’ leadership, the Salem and Hope Creek stations advanced to their highest levels of performance, producing record generation and achieving top quartile performance in a number of indicators including INPO Index.
PSEG Fossil operates the company’s portfolio of natural gas, coal and oil-fired electric generating units. Its two New Jersey coal plants have been retrofitted with approximately $1.5 billion of back-end technology equipment, making them two of the cleanest coal burning plants in the nation. Under Levis’ leadership, many of the process improvements from nuclear were modified and implemented across Fossil. These changes dramatically improved the performance of the entire fleet and resulted in record generation and reliability with a reduced environmental footprint.
PSEG Energy Resources & Trade (ER&T) manages PSEG Power’s generation portfolio and basic gas supply service, the purchase of fuel, and buys and sells electric and gas commodity. ER&T is responsible for taking Power’s assets to the energy markets.
Before coming to PSEG, Mr. Levis was Exelon Nuclear’s vice-president – Mid-Atlantic operations. During his years at Exelon, Mr. Levis oversaw significant improvements, setting records for total annual megawatt production and establishing efficiency records for refueling outages. Prior to joining Exelon, Mr. Levis worked at Ontario Hydro’s Pickering Plant and held several positions over a five-year period with Carolina Power and Light’s Brunswick facility. During this time, the station was removed from the NRC Watch List and set new records in the areas of safety, production, and cost.
Mr. Levis has a Bachelor of Science degree in marine engineering from the U.S. Naval Academy and holds an SRO (senior reactor operator) certification. He retired as a commander in the Naval Reserves and attained his professional engineer license in 1985.
Mr. Levis serves as a member of Pennsylvania Congressman James Gerlach’s Service Academies Selection Committee. He is also a member of Nuclear Energy Institute’s (NEI) Board of Directors, and serves as a member of the Institute of Nuclear Power Operations (INPO) National Nuclear Accrediting Board.
