New Jersey largest electric and gas utility PSE&G today announced that it has completed $5.6 million in electric system upgrades that will improve reliability for residential and business customers in Linden.
The upgrades include the installation of new poles, wires and other equipment to form a self-healing network that automatically isolates problems on a circuit and restores customers more quickly in the event of a power outage.
The upgrades also enabled the utility to retire an older substation and serve Linden customers by a more modern station.
“Our customers expect safe, highly reliable service to power every aspect of their daily lives,” said Jack Bridges, PSE&G vice president of electric operations. “The improvements we have made in Linden will benefit our customers for many years to come.”
Linden Mayor Derek Armstead said, “The reliability upgrades were made with little inconvenience to city residents and will support the city’s economic growth. Everyone benefits from a more modern electric system. I am pleased that PSE&G is investing in our local power grid and our city.”
