"I was convinced we dodged another bullet and we would be okay—within a span of the next half hour we lost 90% of our customers."

- Dr. Ralph Izzo, Chairman, President and CEO

Premiered at ETS18, Resilient Measures, is an ETS Originals made possible by PEER featuring Dr. Ralph Izzo PSEG Chairman, President and CEO and Dawn Zimmer 38th mayor of Hoboken.

“This week at ETS, leaders across the energy industry are focused on driving change that delivers more reliable, resilient and sustainable power systems. I know that by working together that future is not only possible, but achievable,” shared Mahesh Ramanujam, President and CEO, U.S. Green Building Council and Green Business Certification Inc. “That is why I hope you will join me and the PEER team for this year’s ETS Originals film premiere and explore one city’s road to resilience following the devastating effects of Superstorm Sandy. It will remind us that through partnership and collaboration we can strengthen not only our electricity infrastructure, but our communities and the customers we serve.”

This year’s film highlighted the story of Hoboken, NJ, which was devastated by Superstorm Sandy. During the storm, the city lost all electricity and critical services.
