McFeaters to Succeed Carr as PSEG Nuclear President and Chief Nuclear Officer

Public Service Enterprise Group (PSEG) has announced that Charles “Chaz” McFeaters, senior vice president Nuclear Operations, will become PSEG Nuclear president and chief nuclear officer. He will succeed Eric Carr, who will leave his post as president and chief nuclear officer on May 19, 2023. Carr has accepted a position outside the company, according to a PSEG press release.

“PSEG Nuclear is a critical part of PSEG’s powering progress vision and New Jersey’s clean energy goals,” said Ralph LaRossa, chair, president and chief executive officer of PSEG. “We are confident that Chaz will guide a smooth leadership transition and will sustain PSEG Nuclear’s commitment to safety, reliability and operational excellence. Chaz has a proven track record and his promotion reflects our commitment to leadership and talent development. Through our robust succession planning, we are building strong leaders within the organization to ensure a sustainable pipeline for the future.”

McFeaters has more than 30 years of nuclear industry experience including a loan assignment at the Institute of Nuclear Power Operations. He joined PSEG as site vice president of Salem in 2016 coming from FirstEnergy’s (now Energy Harbor) Beaver Valley station. McFeaters was promoted in 2020 to his current role, overseeing the Salem and Hope Creek stations and the training function.

LaRossa continued: “We are grateful to Eric for his many contributions to PSEG that have resulted in the recognized strong performance of our Nuclear plants and wish him well in his next chapter.”
