Today also marked the start of the PSEG Employee Electric Car Incentive
Program at three company locations: PSEG Headquarters in Newark, the PSEG
Edison Training Center and the PSEG Energy and Environment Resource Center in
Salem New Jersey. Participants in the program have access to no-cost charging
through July 2016 and in Newark, have access to no cost parking through July

"This is a great example of 'if you build it they will come.' In just a few
weeks since this program was announced, we have had nine people sign up for
the program – and most of them have gone out and bought an electric car
because of the program," said Randy Mehrberg, executive vice-president of
strategy, PSEG.

All participants agree to complete regular surveys about their electric car
experience. The first was on motivations for purchasing an electric car.
Reasons listed included helping the environment, liking to be on the cutting
edge of technology or saving money on gas or parking. Cars bought by initial
participants included Chevy Volts, Honda Fit, Nissan Leaf, plug-in Toyota
Priuses and a plug-in Ford Fusion.

"PSEG has been a leader in reducing pollution from our power plants but that
will not be enough. It is important that we also make efforts to reduce
emission from transportation – be it from electrifying our ports or increasing
the use of electric cars. I am proud that our employees – as is so often the
case – are leading the way," said Ralph Izzo, chairman, president and CEO,

PSEG is a diversified energy company based in Newark NJ. PSEG has three main
subsidiaries: PSEG, NJ's largest and oldest combined gas and electric delivery
company, PSEG Power, a merchant power generation company and PSEG Energy
Holdings, a developer of solar farms throughout the US.
