Upgrades and New Installations

Planning a Construction Project?

Learn how to apply for new gas or electric service, or how to make changes in existing service.

It is the responsibility of the customer to consult with a PSE&G representative in advance of installation (preferably at the planning stage) to determine the type of service to be supplied and to review the requirements specific to each customer's particular installation. Compliance with these requirements should help to eliminate delays in obtaining electric service and allow PSE&G to safely deliver its customer's energy needs in a timely manner. 

Establish new electric or gas service or upgrade existing service by following these three steps:

  1. Fill out the appropriate application and find out what should happen before and after you apply (the information below provides more detail on this step).
  2. Schedule a mandatory local inspection to receive your Certificate of Approval (or cut-in card) prior to our scheduled service date.
  3. Prepare your site for installation.
