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.

Activity Overview:

Fairmount 69kV Substation 

This project is currently constructing a new 69/13kV substation to expand the 69kV network in Jersey City. The new Fairmount Substation will loop in the existing Kearny-Madison 69kV circuit and construct a new 69kV circuit route to the Greenville Substation.

The project will also include the construction of a new, one-story gas-insulated switchgear (GIS) building and a control house. The Fairmount substation is expected to be completed in June of 2023.

Other Jersey City Activity

The following substations also have recently completed 69kV and other equipment upgrades:

  • Newport Substation, 399 16th Street
  • Penhorn Substation, 2497 Secaucus Road
  • Greenville Substation, 45 Garfield Avenue

NOTE: Construction schedule information is tentative and subject to change based on several factors, including weather and field conditions.

PSE&G will take all necessary steps to avoid any major inconvenience to our customers in the area. However, road and lane closures with possible detours will be necessary during construction. Road closures will not take place prior to 9:00 AM If possible, motorists are encouraged to travel an alternate route until the work is completed. Hoboken Police will be on site during construction hours to oversee and assist with new traffic patterns. All efforts will be made to keep interruptions to a minimum.
