Rutherford

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

  • In 2019, a new 69kV circuit was added to an existing pole line that connects PSE&G’s Van Winkle Substation, located in East Rutherford, to nearby surrounding substations.
    • The pole line runs along the public rights of way spanning sections of Highland Cross, E. Pierrepont Avenue, Eastern Way, Feronia Way, Barrow Road, Marginal Road, and Preble Place
