Beginning on or about Monday, August 8, 2022, PSE&G and our approved contractors will be installing new manholes and duct banks inside the Camden Switching Station (located at 7272 N. Crescent Boulevard in Pennsauken). Work hours are between 7a.m. – 5p.m., Monday – Friday, as well as some evenings and weekends as needed. During construction, unavoidable noise and vibrations may be generated from the site. This phase of construction is estimated to last for two months, weather permitting.
Project Reliability Overview
PSE&G is currently conducting statewide electric reliability improvements to its utility infrastructure. These upgrades will improve both electric service reliability and system redundancy to ensure safe and reliable service to our customers. Throughout the state of New Jersey, PSE&G infrastructure upgrades will reduce the demand on the existing 26kV network. The projects will install 69kV transmission circuits connecting PSE&G stations around the state.
- New 69kV Gas Insulated Switchgear (GIS), which allows for the addition of increased voltage capacity with minimal impact to the existing station footprint, will be installed at our Camden Switching Station.
- Relocation of existing transmission towers inside of the station.
- The project is estimated to be completed by the 3rd Quarter of 2022.
