Aldene - Warinanco - Linden

About the Project

The Aldene-Warinanco-Linden VFT (AWL) electric transmission project is a $90 million investment designed to strengthen the electric transmission system by replacing older transmission facilities between Aldene Switching Station in Cranford, N.J. and Linden VFT Switching Station in Linden, N.J. On average, these transmission facilities are approximately 54 years old.

Authorized in December 2017 by PJM Interconnection (PJM), the regional transmission organization responsible for planning the transmission system in all or parts of 13 states, including New Jersey, the project replaces existing towers due to end-of-life conditions and electric reliability issues. Electric reliability will be enhanced as a result.

The project replaces aging infrastructure in 4 municipalities in Union County, including Cranford Township, Roselle Borough, Elizabeth City, and Linden City.

The project is separated into two segments and requires overhead transmission modifications within existing PSE&G rights-of-way. Segment I of the project runs from the Aldene Switching Station in Cranford to the Warinanco Switching Station in Linden, while Segment II runs from the Warinanco Switching Station to the Linden VFT Switching Station in Linden.  This project is anticipated to be in service by December 31, 2020, with full restoration expected by April 2021.
