Roseland

Reliability Project Overview

The Susquehanna-Roseland Electric Reliability Project is a 500kV transmission line from the Berwick area in Pennsylvania to PSE&G’s switching station in Roseland, New Jersey. PSE&G is building the New Jersey portion of the line, while PPL Electric Utilities, based in Allentown, PA, will build the Pennsylvania portion. The power line project was mandated by PJM Interconnection, the regional entity responsible for planning the transmission system, who determined that the new line was necessary to ensure reliable electric service.

The route for the New Jersey portion of the  line begins in Hardwick Township, Warren County, proceeds east to Andover Township, Sussex County, and on to Hopatcong Borough, also in Sussex  County. The route continues east to Montville Township in Morris County and then turns south to Roseland Borough, Essex County. It follows an existing power line for the entire 45-mile length and will pass through 16 municipalities. The municipalities include Andover Township, Boonton Township, Byram Township, East Hanover Township, Fredon Township, Hardwick Township, Hopatcong Borough, Jefferson Township, Kinnelon Borough, Montville Township, Newton Township, Parsippany-Troy Hills Township, Rockaway Township, Roseland Borough, Sparta Township and Stillwater Township.

Overall construction began 2Q 2012. The entire project is estimated to be in-service by 2Q 2015.

Activity Overview

The Roseland Switching Station will be expanded, entirely within property owned by PSE&G, to add a new 500kV switch yard.

  • Q1 2017 thru Q4 2019

    You may see our crews on the right-of-way performing geotechnical work and verifying subsurface conditions and underground utilities.  In addition, you may see construction activities to support the replacement of the electric infrastructure. Safety is our highest priority at PSE&G, and it is essential that you and anyone occupying your property refrain from going on the right-of-way during these activities.

    PLEASE NOTE: Maintaining proper tree clearance from the power lines is absolutely necessary to assure:

    • The continued safety of homeowners living near the transmission lines,
    • The safety of PSE&G employees and contractors working on the power lines, and
    • The reliability of the electric utility system.

    In order to maintain PSE&G’s facilities, the cutting and/or mowing of vegetation brush may be necessary on the transmission right-of-way that crosses your property.  Every effort will be made to minimize the impact on your property.
