  • Upper Pittsgrove to Cardiff Substation Transmission Line Rebuild:

    Atlantic City Electric will remove a 138 kV double circuit lattice tower transmission line and rebuild it with a single steel pole structure within the existing right of way. The current transmission line and lattice towers are more than 80 years old. A 230 kV transmission line will be installed on the south side of the structure and a 138 kV transmission line will be installed on the north side of the structure. The construction of the upgrades will be beneficial to customers since both age and deteriorating conditions as well as reliability issues will be addressed with the same transmission solution.

    Approximately 1.5 miles of the transmission line will traverse Upper Pittsgrove Township.

    The map shows where the existing line is located in Upper Pittsgrove Township.
