PSE&G was recognized by PA Consulting with a 2019 ReliabilityOne Award for Outstanding Reliability Performance in the Mid-Atlantic Region and Atlantic City Electric was recognized as one of the most improved utilities.
ReliabilityOne Awards are given annually to the utilities that have achieved outstanding reliability performance and have excelled in delivering the most reliable electric service to their customers.
“This recognition helps increase customer awareness about the investments we make and the many ways we work year-round to deliver safe, reliable and resilient electric service,” PSE&G Vice President-Electric Operations Jack Bridges said. “Whether we’re using smart grid technology or climbing backyard poles just like they did 100 years ago, most of our customers experience 99.99 percent reliability and we’re proud of our tradition of keeping the lights on.”
PSE&G invested nearly $2 billion in infrastructure programs to strengthen systems through accomplishments such as modernizing and raising substations high above flood levels, and deploying computer systems, sectionalizing circuits and using spacer equipment — all measures that quicken restoration time.
An outstanding contributor honor was also awarded to PSE&G’s Emergency Preparedness Director Paul Toscarelli of Holmdel.
