PSE&G ELECTRIC RELIABILITY IMPROVEMENTS

UTILITY INFRASTRUCTURE UPGRADES
IN
CITY OF CLIFTON

PSE&G is currently conducting statewide electric reliability improvements to upgrade its utility infrastructure. These upgrades will increase both electric service reliability and system redundancy to ensure safe and reliable electric service to our customers.

In Bergen and Passaic Counties, PSE&G infrastructure upgrades include the addition of a 69kV network that will alleviate the demand on the existing 26kV network. In the City of Clifton, one such project is the installation of 69kV circuits connecting PSE&G’s 40th Street, and East Rutherford stations.

CITY OF CLIFTON PROJECT OVERVIEW

  • New 69kV circuits will be added to an existing pole line that connects PSE&G’s 40th Street and East Rutherford stations. The route to be upgraded runs along Lakeview venue to Alyea Terrace to Lexington Avenue.
  • The existing utility poles will be replaced with taller poles that combine existing 26kV, 13kV, or 4kV circuits.
  • Approximately 82 utility poles will be replaced in the City of Clifton, over a distance of 1.6 miles.
  • Pole line reconstruction activities are anticipated to begin in Late Spring/Summer of 2014.
  • PSE&G will work with the City of Clifton Police to keep traffic impacts to a minimum.

COMMUNITY BENEFITS

These upgrades will enhance electric capacity, system redundancy, and service reliability to the City of Clifton, as well as surrounding communities.
