Pse&g is a complete monopoly in providing utility services, there service is extremely bad, if you need to talk to a customer service rep, you need to be on hold for about 30-45 mins. Their billing system and meter reading is a complete rip-off of consumers. They don't explain their bills well. During and winter/summer, for the peak two or three months irrespective of you use electricity/gas or not you have to pay double/triple the usage... Because they say so. And then when you ask for a meter change and meter replacement, you end up paying for the old and the new meter for the month. They don't have the courtesy to apologize and agree to their mistakes, even when the next bill with the new meter goes down by 5 times from the previous one. Never trust this pse&g company>they are just exploiting us consumers>

    It's hard to argue with real experiences but unfortunately these things happen, however the reality is that you shouldn't t have to put up with it. And the great thing is that you don't: there are other choices to get energy out there - I am of course referring to solar energy.

    You may have heard about solar before, but what you may not have heard is that solar can offset you bills to practically nothing and it is far more affordable than you might think:
    a) If one has the means they can purchase it for cash, It pays for itself in about 6 to 7 years. No more bills plus it earns you an income. Enough said.
    b) One can also take out a loan and finance it that way. Immediate savings can still be achieved from day one even with a loan however the payback term is slightly lengthened to account for the loan interest payments. You still get the income through selling your energy credits and when the loan is paid off you have full energy savings and the income combined; or
    c) the third option that one can take is to lease a solar system. In this case the leasee is able to lower their electricity bills today and continue to pay that same low amount each month for the entire lease term of eight years - and with no upfront cost to the leasee.
    For example, if you are paying an average electricity bill of $120/month (1, 400/year) you will only have to pay about $96/month (or $1, 152/year) for the next eight years -- even if electricity rates are sky-rocketing. At worst you save $288 in the first year for doing nothing, and as rates rise you save more. The best part is you don't have to pay anything to have it installed: The financier takes care of that.

    It's awful to hear stories like these, but because it's PSE&G it means you're in New Jersey and New Jersey happens to be the best state in the country for assisting individuals with adopting solar. So, if PSE&G are causing you grief then give solar a thought.
