Burlington City

Reliability Project Overview

The Metuchen-Trenton-Burlington Project (MTB) is a $739M investment designed to strengthen the electric transmission system by replacing 138,000-volt (138kV) circuits with 230,000-volt (230kV) circuits between the PSE&G Metuchen Switching Station in Edison, NJ and the PSE&G Burlington Switching Station in Burlington, NJ.  The project replaces aging infrastructure in 17 municipalities and modifies, upgrades or reconfigures 17 electric stations.

The project is separated into three segments and requires overhead transmission modifications within existing PSE&G right of ways. The existing 138kV lattice towers supporting the overhead lines will be replaced with monopoles.  Segment IA of the project runs from Metuchen to Brunswick, while Segment IB runs from Brunswick to Trenton. Segment II runs from Trenton to Burlington. This project is anticipated to be in-service in June 2022.

69kV Initiative

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.
