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.

69kV Initiative


Maintaining safe, reliable electric service

  • PSE&G’s proposed electric reliability projects in Cranford are part of a statewide plan to upgrade its infrastructure to ensure that the utility can meet the needs of customers today and well into the future.
  • PSE&G has been upgrading its electric system throughout the state by installing stronger poles and state-of-the-art wires and other equipment to withstand increasingly damaging storms due to climate change and to meet the demand for electricity.
  • Since 2007, PSE&G has installed more than 400 miles of 69,000-volt (69kV) lines in more than 93 municipalities in New Jersey. By the end of 2023, we anticipate that 570 miles will have been upgraded.
