Ridgewood NJ, PSE&G is preparing for the approaching storm predicted to bring heavy snow and strong winds to the Northeast on Tuesday. Snow and high winds can bring down trees and power lines. We take every storm with the potential for outages seriously, and we have additional personnel and auxiliary equipment ready.

We also have extra personnel to respond as quickly as possible to emergency requests. Both PSE&G’s call centers and appliance service department are prepared to respond to customer “no heat” calls as temperatures remain low during the next several days.

Stay connected:

•To report power outages call PSE&G’s Customer Service line at 1-800-436-PSEG (7734), or log in to My Account at to report an outage or view outage status.
•You can also report an outage by texting “OUT” to 4PSEG.
•Sign up for MyAlerts for 2-way text or email notifications about the status of power outages in your area.
•View our Outage Map that is updated every 15 minutes and displays the location and status of power outages in PSE&G’s service area.

Be safe:

•Downed wires should always be considered “live.” Do not approach or drive over a downed line and do not touch anything that it might be in contact with. To report downed wires call 1-800-436-PSEG.
•To prevent carbon monoxide poisoning, do not run any gasoline powered engine, including generators and snow blowers, in a garage or any other enclosed space.
