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.
- 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.
- The new 69kV circuits will connect the Lawrence Switching Station, Ewing Substation, and Hamilton Substation
- The route is approximately 12 miles along existing public rights of way and roadways (all necessary permits, easements, and state/local approvals are in-place in advance of the work beginning) through Lawrence Township, Ewing Township, and Hamilton Township.
- The project is estimated to be completed by the 4th Quarter of 2018
- PSE&G will work with Ewing Township Police to keep traffic impacts to a minimum.
