For decades, a plot of land along Donaldson Street in Highland Park served as a municipal landfill for unwanted household appliances, miscellaneous waste, and construction and demolition debris that reflected the rise of Middlesex County as one of New Jersey’s rising job centers.
But today, thanks to PSE&G’s Solar 4 All program, the site is returning to productive use with the construction of a 2-acre, 605-kilowatt-dc solar farm and battery storage system.
PSEG’s Power of One campaign, a yearlong, companywide initiative to celebrate volunteerism, launched in May. Since then, we have highlighted members of the PSEG workforce for their good deeds on the company’s Energize! blog and social media channels. We’ve also awarded thousands of dollars’ worth of grants from the PSEG Foundation in employees’ names to the organizations to which they give their time.

Ghouls, goblins and other scary creatures roam our neighborhoods on Halloween. But there are other scary creatures – vampire devices – secretly sucking energy from our homes.
Vampire energy, or phantom load, is the name we give to the electricity consumed by household electronics when they’re not in use. Households in PSE&G’s service territory spend an average of about $1,200 a year in energy costs, and up to 10 percent of that can be attributed to vampire appliances wasting energy that customers probably don’t even realize is being used.
I started my career with PSEG two years ago as a meter reader out of the Burlington office. Volunteering has been a big part of my life since I was a young kid, and one of the benefits of working at PSEG is its culture of service and encouragement of its workers to be active in community service.

Despite warnings that we have a limited window in which to make drastic cuts in global climate emissions, the world is on pace to fall far short of what it takes to secure our future.
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has warned that we must limit global warming to no more than 1.5 degrees Celsius by 2030. To do that, we would need to achieve drastic worldwide reductions in emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases.

Throughout my entire life, I’ve been very fortunate, which is why I’ve volunteered for many organizations over the years. But no organization has meant more to me than Children’s Theater of Livingston, where I am currently co-president and treasurer. The CTL embodies my passion for theater, children and volunteering all in one. Some might say I have a special attachment because I founded CTL in 2006 with a group of close friends, but it truly is much more about sharing my love of theater with the next generation.
