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.

Activity Overview

  • Elevation of new and existing distribution equipment in accordance with Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) recently revised flood hazard guidance to mitigate the impact of future flooding events as experienced during Hurricane Irene and Superstorm Sandy. 
  • Install and raise critical equipment within the station fence line.
  • The project is scheduled to begin construction in November 2015.
  • PSE&G will work with the Rahway Police to keep traffic impacts to a minimum.
