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.
Kingsland – Van Winkle 69kV Network
We are constructing a permanent 230kV/69kV switching station at our Kingsland site, off Disposal Road and adjacent to the existing Kingsland 230kV/13kV substation. The project will also construct new circuits connecting the site to the previously upgraded Belleville and East Rutherford switching stations, as well as the future South 5th Street substation currently being built in Harrison.
The addition of a new 69kV supply source to the Kingsland station will simplify operations and improve reliability. It will also ensure adequate capacity for future growth.
The project is expected to be completed by December 2020.
