Camden

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.

PSE&G recently completed electric system upgrades in your neighborhood, including the installation of more-resilient utility poles.  While the upgraded electric system is now in service, restoration of the public rights-of-way and roadways has begun in the City of Camden.
