PSEG opened an electric car charging facility in New Jersey with 13 electric vehicle charging stations in the garage at the utility's headquarters. Eleven of the spots are designated for employees' use and two spots are used for company electric cars.

Today also marked the start of the PSEG Employee Electric Car Incentive Program at three company locations: PSEG Headquarters in Newark, N.J., the PSEG Edison Training Center and the PSEG Energy and Environment Resource Center in Salem New Jersey. Participants in the program have access to no-cost charging through July 2016 and in Newark, have access to no cost parking through July 2016.

All participants agreed to complete regular surveys about their electric car experience. The first was on motivations for purchasing an electric car. Reasons listed included helping the environment, liking to be on the cutting edge of technology or saving money on gas or parking. Cars bought by initial participants included Chevy Volts, Honda Fit, Nissan Leaf, plug-in Toyota Priuses and a plug-in Ford Fusion.

PSEG has three main units: PSE&G, NJ's largest and oldest combined gas and electric delivery company, PSEG Power, a merchant power generation company and PSEG Energy Holdings, a developer of solar farms throughout the U.S.
