Covington Secures First SAFETY ACT Protections for Public Utility

August 20, 2018

WASHINGTON—Covington represented Public Service Enterprise Group and its subsidiary Public Service Electric & Gas in securing liability protection under the Support Anti-Terrorism by Fostering Effective Technologies Act of 2002 from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. PSE&G is the first public utility in the United States to be awarded SAFETY Act coverage.

The award covers eleven core components of PSEG’s physical security program, as applied to five critical PSE&G electric sites in New Jersey.

Ray Biagini and Alex Sarria led the Covington team advising PSEG.

Covington has developed a preeminent SAFETY Act practice and assists clients to formulate and file applications involving complex anti-terrorism technologies and internal security programs. Its lawyers have filed successful applications for companies in virtually every major United States industry, including in the energy, transportation, chemical, professional sports, real estate and government contracting sectors.
