Forward Looking Statements

Select One

Certain of the matters discussed in this website about our and our subsidiaries’ future performance, including, without limitation, future revenues, earnings, strategies, prospects, consequences and all other statements that are not purely historical constitute “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Such forward- looking statements are subject to risks and uncertainties, which could cause actual results to differ materially from those anticipated. Such statements are based on management’s beliefs as well as assumptions made by and information currently available to management. When used herein, the words “anticipate,” “intend,” “estimate,” “believe,” “expect,” “plan,” “should,” “hypothetical,” “potential,” “forecast,” “project,” variations of such words and similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements. Factors that may cause actual results to differ are often presented with the forward-looking statements themselves. Other factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those contemplated in any forward- looking statements made by us herein are discussed in filings we make with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), including our 2020 Annual Report on Form 10-K and subsequent reports on Form 10-Q and Form 8-K. These factors include, but are not limited to:

  • any inability to successfully develop, obtain regulatory approval for, or construct generation, transmission and distribution projects;
  • lack of growth or slower growth in the number of customers or the failure of our Conservation Incentive Program to fully address a decline in customer demand;
  • any equipment failures, accidents, severe weather events, acts of war or terrorism or other incidents, including pandemics such as the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, that may impact our ability to provide safe and reliable service to our customers;
  • any inability to recover the carrying amount of our long-lived assets;
  • any inability to maintain sufficient liquidity;
  • the impact of cybersecurity attacks or intrusions or other disruptions to our information technology or other systems;
  • the impact of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic;
  • the impact of our covenants in our debt instruments on our operations;
  • adverse performance of our nuclear decommissioning and defined benefit plan trust fund investments and changes in funding requirements;
  • risks associated with the timeline and ultimate completion of the sale of our fossil generating fleet;
  • the failure to complete, or delays in completing, our proposed investment in the Ocean Wind offshore wind project, or following the completion of our initial investment in the project, the failure to realize the anticipated strategic and financial benefits of the project;
  • fluctuations in wholesale power and natural gas markets, including the potential impacts on the economic viability of our generation units;
  • our ability to obtain adequate fuel supply;
  • disruptions or cost increase in our supply chain, including labor shortages;
  • market risks impacting the operation of our generating stations;
  • changes in technology related to energy generation, distribution and consumption and changes in customer usage patterns;
  • third-party credit risk relating to our sale of generation output and purchase of fuel;
  • any inability of PSEG Power to meet its commitments under forward sale obligations;
  • reliance on transmission facilities to maintain adequate transmission capacity for our power generation fleet;
  • the impact of changes in state and federal legislation and regulations on our business, including PSE&G’s ability to recover costs and earn returns on authorized investments;
  • PSE&G’s proposed investment programs may not be fully approved by regulators and its capital investment may be lower than planned;
  • the absence of a long-term legislative or other solution for our New Jersey nuclear plants that sufficiently values them for their carbon-free, fuel diversity and resilience attributes, or the impact of the current or subsequent payments for such attributes being materially adversely modified through legal proceedings;
  • adverse changes in energy industry laws, policies and regulations, including market structures and transmission planning and transmission returns;
  • risks associated with our ownership and operation of nuclear facilities, including regulatory risks, such as compliance with the Atomic Energy Act and trade control, environmental and other regulations, as well as financial, environmental and health and safety risks;
  • changes in federal and state environmental regulations and enforcement;
  • changes in tax laws and regulations; and
  • delays in receipt of, or an inability to receive, necessary licenses and permits.
