Edison, NJ - Public Service Electric & Gas Company (PSE&G) announced that it will be conducting inspections of gas meters in Edison to ensure the continued safety and reliability of gas services.  The inspections will include outdoor as well as indoor meters. PSE&G technicians are required to obtain consent from an individual over the age of 18 in order to access indoor meters.

“Customer safety is our number one priority,” said Joe Forline, vice president of gas operations for PSE&G. “It’s important for us to conduct safety inspections like these so that we can check for surface corrosion, leaks and other conditions that might require attention or repair.”

According to the company, the inspections are free and will take approximately 10 minutes. Additionally, unless a meter requires immediate repair, the company stated that there will be no interruption to service. PSE&G  is also assuring residents that service will not be turned off during the inspection due to billing status.

PSE&G is also reminding customers to always ask for identification when a utility worker comes to the door.  According to the company, employees carry a PSE&G photo identification badge, wear PSE&G logo apparel and drive PSE&G cars or trucks.  If a customer is concerned in any way, they should call PSE&G’s customer service line at 800-436-PSEG (7734) to verify the identity of an employee.
