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.
Fairmount 69kV Substation
PSE&G 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.
