Reliability Project Overview
The PSE&G Energy Strong Program will strengthen New Jersey’s electric and gas systems in an effort to proactively protect its infrastructure against severe weather damage like the state experienced during Hurricane Irene and Superstorm Sandy. As part of the program, PSE&G will protect, raise or relocate 29 switching and substations throughout New Jersey that were damaged by water either due to excessive rainfall or a storm surge.
- The Bayway Substation, which currently serves the Elizabeth area, has been damaged by flooding in the past. To improve the electric reliability in the area, the electric services for Elizabeth will be upgraded from 4kV to 13kV.
- As part of this upgrade, PSE&G will be trimming trees, replacing utility poles and upgrading other equipment that serves your area.
- This project is scheduled to be in-service in May 2017.
- PSE&G will work with the City of Elizabeth Police Department to keep traffic impacts to a minimum.
