PSE&G customers to pay less for heat this winter

By: myCentralJersey.com |

Public Service Electric and Gas Company (PSE&G) announced Monday that it will provide bill credits this winter that will lower bills by about 30 percent during the months of December, January and February for a typical residential gas heating customer.

Those customers will see a total bill credit of approximately $124 this winter.

Including this winter’s bill credits announced Monday, since January 2009, annual bills for PSE&G’s typical residential gas heating customer will be 55 percent — or $916 — lower due to supply rate reductions. In fact, PSE&G’s gas supply rate is at its lowest in 15 years.

“I can’t think of any other commodity that costs 55 percent less today than it did in 2009,” said Jorge Cardenas, PSE&G vice president of asset management and centralized services. “Falling natural gas prices, our transportation and storage capabilities, and the way we manage our contracts have enabled us to pass these savings along to our customers as the temperature drops.”
