PSEG is a National Leader in Producing Green Energy
Our company has invested nearly $2 billion in solar energy, helping to rank New Jersey consistently among the top states for solar development. PSE&G's national recognized Solar 4 All program constructed the nation’s largest network of pole-attached solar panels. Our efforts to build solar generation facilities on old landfills and brownfields has also been nationally recognized. PSEG Solar Source has developed two dozen grid-connected solar energy centers in New Jersey and 14 other states.
PSEG’s nuclear plants in Salem County are New Jersey’s largest source of carbon-free electricity.
The company plans to expand its green energy efforts even farther in the area of energy efficiency.
PSEG as 100 People
PSEG has 13,000 employees across multiple states representing varied backgrounds and expertise. But could you conceptualize what a snapshot of PSEG would look like as just 100 people? That’s just what the PSEG Foundation set out to do when it partnered with the 100 People Foundation.
Using the 100 People Foundation philosophy and methodology, we set out to meet the 100 people who could best represent our company. The result was a diverse group of employees who helped create a community that represents PSEG by job type and companywide statistics. Employees from varied positions, levels and tenure were nominated by their peers as the people they most admire.
Some of the employees chosen to help represent PSEG as 100 people served in the military, where they learned about great teamwork, or are the third generation of their family to work for PSEG. More than one nominee was the first member of their family to attend college. It is this diverse culture that makes us who we are: a great place to work and a committed member of the communities we serve.
