MyAlerts is offered at no charge by PSE&G. However, your mobile phone provider may bill you for text messages received and sent with this service. PSE&G is not responsible for these charges. Before using MyAlerts, check with your mobile phone service provider for text message rates and plans.
PSE&G cannot guarantee delivery of text messages. Your mobile phone wireless carrier is responsible for delivering text messages. Text message delivery may be limited by your mobile phone plan, or your carrier's wireless coverage area. Your mobile phone must be on to receive text messages. From time to time, MyAlerts may be unavailable. This could result in undelivered or untimely text messages.
Follow the instructions above to opt out of MyAlerts from your old phone number. Then, follow the registration instructions to set up MyAlerts for your new phone number.

My neighbor's power is out, but they are not registered for MyAlerts. Can I report a power outage for them via pay by text?
No. You can only report a power outage via text for the locations associated with your mobile phone. Your neighbor can register for the program by texting REG to 4PSEG (47734).
Please let us know by calling 1-800-436-7734. We'll cancel it.
MyAlerts is intended for use during normal weather and operating conditions. During times of widespread outages or emergency situations (such as hurricanes, ice storms, etc.), PSE&G focuses resources on power restoration. In these situations, MyAlerts messages may be limited to certain regions, delayed, or both. In times of weather disasters, power outage text messages and emails may not be deliverable
Power restoration times are only estimates. They are based on the best information we have at the time about the power outage. We generally know how long different types of power outages take to restore, but each power outage may have unique circumstances.
Yes, a Payment Posted message simply means PSE&G has received your payment and has applied it to your account. The payment could still be returned by the financial institution. In those cases, you will receive a call to the phone number we have on file for your account.
A payment reminder is a text and/or email that will be sent to you five days prior to your PSE&G bill due date. If your balance is paid in full, you will not receive a message. If you’re enrolled in Automatic Bill Pay , the alert will remind you that a payment is scheduled.
Please first check the circuit breaker box at your property. See if any breakers have tripped to the OFF position. If so, flip them to the ON position. If power is still not restored after checking the breaker, text OUT to 4PSEG (47734) to report the power outage again. There may be additional damage at your location that we were not previously aware of during the original repairs. If you see downed wires, damaged poles, etc., please call us at 1-800-436-7734 to report the damaged equipment.
