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 pseg.com, 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.
For more information, visit pseg.com/saveenergy today!
*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 pseg.com or call 1-888-275-7734.
If you are falling behind on your PSE&G bill, help is available!
PSE&G knows that paying energy bill can become a struggle for our low to moderate income households. That’s why we want to remind our customers that help is available if your energy bills have become unmanageable.
