In the three years since Superstorm Sandy, Public Service Electric and Gas Company (PSE&G), New Jersey’s largest utility, has made substantial progress to strengthen and protect its infrastructure against future extreme storms. From replacing gas pipes, raising and rebuilding electrical substations, and adding higher voltage lines on stronger poles, this work will keep more customers in service during a storm, and restore service faster in the aftermath.

Superstorm Sandy was the most powerful and destructive storm in Public Service Electric and Gas Company’s 111-year history, causing more than 2 million PSE&G customers to lose power. In the two years since the storm, PSE&G, which serves nearly three-quarters of New Jersey’s population, continues to make significant improvements to its infrastructure, communications and logistics that will keep more customers in service during a storm, and restore service faster in the aftermath.

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) is selecting three offshore wind demonstrations to receive up to $47 million each over the next four years in an effort to deploy innovative, grid-connected systems in federal and state waters by 2017. These projects — located off the coast of New Jersey, Oregon and Virginia — will help speed the deployment of more efficient offshore wind power technologies and drive lower costs, drive greater performance, and clear any challenges to installing more utility-scale turbines in U.S. waters.
