Reliability Project Overview
PSE&G is currently conducting statewide electric reliability improvements to its utility infrastructure. These enhancements 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 circuits will connect local substations serving your community, increasing the reliability and capacity of electric service
- The existing utility poles will be replaced with taller, sturdier poles that combine new 69kV circuits with existing 26kV, 13kV, or 4kV circuits.
- Vegetation Management activity such as tree trimming or tree removals may occur in order to allow for the safe installation of new equipment.
- PSE&G will work with the Township of Bridgewater Police to keep traffic impacts to a minimum.
This route will be along the existing public right of ways in the towns of Bridgewater, Green Brook, Middlesex, Dunellen, North Plainfield, Plainfield and Scotch Plains.
