PSEG Power, the company's wholesale energy supply business, generates output from nuclear, gas, coal and oil. That fuel diversity is important, Izzo said, pointing out that the company was able to adapt to low gas prices by running its combined cycle plants more than its coal plants.
PSEG's focus on disciplined investment and a strong balance sheet has supported a long history of paying a common dividend and enabled the recent 2 cent increase in the dividend to $1.44 per share.
Also during 2012, PSEG brought online 400 megawatts of new, clean peaking capacity in New Jersey and Connecticut; PSEG's Hope Creek facility was recognized as one of the top-performing nuclear plants in the country and PSE&G was recognized for the fifth time in eight years as America's most reliable electric utility.
