Conservation and Renewable Energy
PSE&G is committed to initiatives already under way to reduce electric use by boosting energy efficiency and renewable energy sources. PSE&G and its parent company, PSEG, have taken concrete steps to invest in energy conservation and renewable energy, including development of solar and wind technologies.
Even with these alternatives, electric demand is still expected to increase. Our energy usage is increasing everyday because of everything from electric kitchen gadgets to big screen televisions. Even our cars of the future may run on electricity.
This transmission reinforcement is needed to meet increasing demand, ensure electric reliability and reduce congestion on our regional power grid. In addition, these new lines will likely carry a mix of power into our region, including power made from renewable sources like wind.
No matter the source of power, transmission lines are necessary to move electricity from where it is produced to the distribution networks that deliver it to homes and businesses.
PSE&G is proud of its environmental record and stewardship. The utility is committed to minimizing the environmental and land usage impacts when constructing this line, while still fulfilling its obligation to provide safe, reliable energy to the region. PSE&G will pay close attention to environmental factors such as wetlands, threatened and endangered species, Green Acres and historical and archeological sites every step of the way as the project moves forward.
