Summer is not over yet

With very high temperatures forecasted for the next several days, PSE&G is prepared to meet the demand for additional power. We also remind you that hot and sticky weather can lead to more energy usage and higher electric bills. Save energy and money with the following simple tips:

  • Don't cool an empty house. Set your thermostat higher when you are away.
  • Use a microwave or crockpot instead of the oven. Better yet, grill outdoors.
  • Operate appliances in the morning or evening when it is cooler outside.
  • Close blinds and draperies facing the sun to keep out the sun's heat.
  • Don't cool unused rooms. Close the vents and shut the door.
  • Ceiling fans cool fast and cost less than air conditioning. (In hot weather, set your ceiling fan to spin quickly, counterclockwise to push air downward toward the floor.)
