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.
Hackensack 69kV Conversion
Beginning in 2021, the Hackensack substation’s 26kV supply will be replaced with the resilient 69kV supply and replace the 26kV equipment that will be elevated above FEMA’s flood level plain.
A new Gas Insulated Switchgear (GIS), which allows for the addition of increased voltage capacity with minimal impact to the existing station footprint, will be installed. The project also includes the demolition of an existing one-story control house and the installation of new electrical equipment including three new transformers.
The addition of a new 69kV supply source will not only improve reliability, it will ensure adequate capacity for future growth.
