The Gas System Modernization Program (GSMP) of our regulated utility, PSE&G, calls for replacement of more than 500 miles of aging gas pipes throughout New Jersey and is a great example of the company's mission. This important work not only enhances the safety and reliability of our energy infrastructure, it also reduces the release of methane, a potent greenhouse gas, and creates hundreds of jobs.
PSEG is also a leader in expanding customer access to energy efficiency and renewable solar power. Since 2009, PSEG has invested more than $1 billion to directly develop or finance clean solar power. This includes 28 grid-connected community solar facilities in New Jersey and a portfolio of 17 utility-scale solar operations across 12 states. In 2015, PSE&G received approval to invest an additional $95 million in energy efficiency programs for its utility customers, an essential part of building a sustainable future.
"With 2016 likely to be the hottest year on record, investors are again reminded that companies' environmental and sustainability efforts are crucial to their financial outcomes," said David Blitzer, managing director and chairman of the Index Committee at S&P Dow Jones Index.
