(Nov. 18, 2010) — PSE&G customers who sign up for paperless billing in November have two opportunities to help the environment: reduce the amount of paper in landfills and recycling centers, and enter to win a brand-new, fuel-efficient Ford Fiesta.
The car giveaway is the latest way the state’s largest utility is encouraging customers to view their monthly bill electronically, which is both safe and secure. By signing up to view their bill electronically, PSE&G customers will appreciate the following benefits:
• Monthly e-mail reminders with bill amount and due date
• Secure and easy online access to view or print current and past bills, 24/7
• Less clutter and paper used, which also helps the environment
“PSE&G mails more than 2.4 million bills each month,” said Joe Forline, PSE&G’s vice president of customer operations. “That’s a substantial amount of paper and envelopes that can easily be diverted from landfills or recycling centers if our customers chose to receive their bills electronically. In addition to saving paper, customers would have less kitchen table clutter and fewer misplaced bills.”
Paperless billing is free and one of many options available to PSE&G customers when they enroll in the My Account self-service feature at www.pseg.com. More than 600,000 people have already signed up to manage their accounts online since the options became available last year.
Additional My Account online self-service options include making a payment, submitting meter readings or viewing meter reading dates, scheduling or changing service appointments, starting or stopping PSE&G service, and analyzing home energy use to receive customized energy saving tips.
No purchase is necessary to participate in PSE&G’s paperless billing car giveaway, which is open to all New Jersey residents living in PSE&G’s service territory.
