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 circuits connecting PSE&G stations around the state.
Please note: PSE&G does not expect these projects to cause any service interruptions.
- We are installing taller, sturdier utility poles and running new electric wires along existing pole lines. Upgrades are underway on Morris Avenue. This work will continue through spring 2021, followed by cleanup and restoration.
- In addition, we are upgrading the existing Vaux Hall, Stanley Terrace and Springfield Road substations. The Vaux Hall project is expected to be completed in 2022, while the other two projects are expected to be completed in 2021.
To comply with the Board of Public Utilities’ Vegetation Management Rules, we may also trim and remove trees where necessary. Learn more.
Some aspects of these activities may result in unavoidable noise. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
Lane closures and detours may occur during construction. PSE&G will work with the Union Township Police to keep traffic impacts to a minimum.
Safety is our highest priority. It is essential that you and everyone using your property, including children and pets, refrain from going near our construction work zones.
Thank you for understanding as we improve electric service reliability for the region.
