Helping customers; helping the environment score industry honors for PSE&G
Utility recognized for innovation and customer service by ENERGY STAR® and CS Week
(NEWARK, N.J. – May 9, 2022) —PSE&G’s landmark energy efficiency program has received two industry awards recognizing efforts aimed at helping customers use less energy. The utility is a winner of the 2022 ENERGY STAR® “Partner of the Year” award in the Energy Efficiency Program Delivery category. The program has also won the 2022 Expanding Excellence Award in Innovation in People & Process, by CS Week, an annual gathering of utility customer service professionals.
Each year ENERGY STAR®, a U.S. government program that provides information on the efficiency performance of products, honors select utilities and other businesses that have made outstanding contributions to protecting the environment through superior energy achievements.
“We're looking forward to continuing our partnership with ENERGY STAR® as we carry on our mission to work toward a carbon-free economy," said Karen Reif, vice president for PSE&G’s Renewables & Energy Solutions group. “We're also driven to continue and build upon the partnership we've established with our customers; providing products and services to help them use energy more efficiently.”
“We know it’s going to take all of us working together to tackle the climate crisis, and the 2022 ENERGY STAR® award-winning partners are demonstrating what it takes to build a more sustainable future,” said EPA Administrator Michael S. Regan in a statement. “These companies are showing once again that taking action in support of a clean energy economy can be good not only for the environment, but also for business and customers.”
“Partner of the Year” winners are selected from a network of ENERGY STAR® partners. For a complete list of 2022 winners and more information on the ENERGY STAR® awards program, visit:
