Preparing for Sizzling Temperatures

While PSE&G expects to have no trouble delivering additional power during the forecasted heat wave, we are closely monitoring weather conditions and have additional personnel scheduled to handle any power interruptions should they occur.  Our call centers will also have extra personnel on duty to speak with customers and appliance service technicians are ready to quickly respond to an expected influx of air conditioning repair calls.

Tips to help you save energy and stay cool as temperatures rise:

Turn off everything you’re not using: lights, computers, etc. Use dimmers, timers and motion detectors on indoor and outdoor lighting.

Close blinds and shades facing the sun to keep the sun’s heat out and help fans and air conditioners cool more efficiently.

Close doors leading to uncooled areas. With central air, close off vents to unused rooms.

Consider setting air conditioners to 78 degrees.
