October 16, 2018- Sargent & Lundy proudly supports PSE&G’s Clean Energy Future (CEF) plan that proposes a $4 billion investment in clean energy and advanced technology aimed to help New Jersey meet ambitious environmental goals. Sargent & Lundy serves as PSE&G’s engineer of choice.
The CEF proposal calls for historic investments in energy efficiency, electric vehicle charging infrastructure, utility-scale energy storage capabilities, and technology that will help PSE&G take great leaps forward in reliability and resiliency.
