PSE&G: Helping you Manage Energy Costs

PSE&G: Working for you-Helping you manage Energy Costs:

At PSE&G, we work hard to provide you with affordable energy to power your life and keep your family warm and safe. In fact today, the combined electric and gas bill of the typical PSE&G residential customer has gone down about 30% since 2008.

Here are some other ways we can help you manage your electric and gas counts:

*Save Energy and Money:

Learn about steps you can take to reduce your energy usage all year round. When you provide your email address in My Account at, you can also receive EnergyLink, our monthly e-newsletter full of energy saving tips.

*Apply for Payment Assistance:

If your energy bills become unmanageable, a number of payment assistance programs are available for low and moderate income customers as well as senior citizens and people with disabilities.

*Receive Appliance Rebates:

New Jersey’s Clean Energy Program is a statewide program that offers financial incentives, programs and services to help you save energy and money.

*Avoid Seasonal Peaks in your bills!

Another way to manage energy costs is to sign up for PSE&G’s Equal Payment Plan (EPP). The EPP allows you to pay the same amount each month for your energy bill. While your pay for the energy you use, the total cost is divided into equal monthly payments.

Once a year, you will be billed your regular EPP amount plus any balance due or less any balance due or less any credit. We’ll also let you know if your payment amount needs to be adjusted due to a change in your energy use.

To enroll, log into My Account at or call 1-888-275-7734.

If you are falling behind on your PSE&G bill, help is available!

I am a free-lance writer and Blogger. I am the author of the book "Firehouse 101" ( 2005) part of trilogy of books centered in New York City. My next book "Love Triangles" is finished being edited and should be ready for release in the Fall. My latest book, "Dinner at Midnight", a thriller is on its last chapter.

I have a blog site for caregivers called 'bergencountycaregiver', a step by step survival guide to all you wonderful folks taking care of your loved ones, a walking project to walk every block, both sides, of the island of Manhattan "MywalkinManhattan" and discuss what I see and find on the streets of New York and three sites to accompany it. One is an arts site called "Visiting a Museum", where I showcase small museums, historical sites and parks that are off the beaten track both in Manhattan and outside the city to cross reference with "MywalkinManhattan" blog site. Another is "DiningonaShoeStringNYC", featuring small restaurants I have found on my travels in this project, that offer wonderful meals for $10.00 and under. So be on the lookout for updates on all three sites and enjoy 'MywalkinManhattan'. The third is my latest site, "LittleShoponMainStreet", which showcases all the unique and independent shops that I have found on my travels throughout and around Manhattan. I have started two new blog sites for the fire department, one "EngineOneHasbrouck HeightsFireDepartmentnj" for the Hasbrouck Heights Fire Department to discuss what our Engine Company is doing and the other is "BergenCountyFireman'sHomeAssociation" for the Bergen County Fireman's Association, which fire fighters from Bergen County, NJ, go to the Fireman's Home in Boonton, NJ to bring entertainment and cheer to our fellow brother fire fighters quarterly.
