Sandy was a vivid reminder of how much we rely on electricity not just for comfort and convenience, but for health and welfare.
This is especially true for the most vulnerable among us, including older people. That is why we at Springpoint Senior Living support PSE&G in its Energy Strong initiative as it seeks to create a more resilient power grid, one that can withstand harsher storms.
This kind of an infrastructure improvement would obviously be welcomed not just by our residents but by seniors throughout the state.
To view the bigger picture, Energy Strong is an investment in all of New Jersey. The improvements will have far-reaching, long-lasting benefits for New Jersey, supporting the state's economy by creating 5,800 jobs — all without asking customers to pay more.
A strong, stable energy grid also gives our state an advantage in attracting good employers, thus keeping our economy healthy. That's good for everyone.
