SJI traces its roots back to 1910 when Atlantic City Gas and Water Company merged with Atlantic City Gas Company. This was the first in a series of acquisitions that eventually created SJI’s subsidiary, South Jersey Gas in 1948, a regulated utility serving all or parts of the seven southern counties in New Jersey.

The new SJG headquarters was located in Atlantic City. During the 1950s, SJG continued to acquire smaller gas companies in Cumberland and Salem counties. SJG purchased its Cape May county division in 1983 from New Jersey Natural Gas.

In 1969, SJG’s board of directors and management decided to engage in other business lines that SJG could not participate in as a regulated utility. Thus, SJI was incorporated as a holding company and in 1970 SJG became its primary subsidiary.

In 1970, SJI built a new corporate headquarters in Folsom and over the next three decades bought and then sold several non-utility subsidiary companies.

In the mid-1980s, SJI created South Jersey Energy to participate in retail commodity sales opportunities created by deregulation of the natural gas industry.
