seeking Board approval to implement and administer PSE&G’s Energy Strong Program (“ES Program”) and

infrastructure and services for them to better to withstand the impacts of hurricanes and other severe
weather events. These investments will include $1,703 million in electric distribution infrastructure
investments and $906 million in gas distribution infrastructure investments.
*Approval of this filing would initially increase rates effective January 1, 2014
to be paid by the Company’s electric customers by $16.411 million annually and would initially increase
rates to be paid by the Company’s gas customers by $12.970 million annually.
