LANDING, N.J. – As part of ongoing reliability enhancements, Atlantic City Electric has completed construction of a
new distribution substation located on the north side
of Moss Mill Road and west of Wrangleboro Road in Port Republic, N.J.
new substation will enhance reliability for residents of Galloway Township and
“Atlantic City Electric is
committed to providing our communities with safe and reliable service,” said
Vince Maione, Atlantic City Electric region president. “The new substation will
further improve service reliability for our customers in Port Republic and Galloway
Township and help support the current and future demand for electricity in this
the new substation, power to the area was delivered through distribution lines
that were fed from a substation approximately 4 miles away. The new substation
is located in the center of the area it will serve, and power is now delivered
through shorter distribution lines, which will allow for quicker restoration in
the event of an outage. The substation is also located adjacent to already
existing transmission and distribution lines, which eliminated the need to obtain
new right of way and construct new lines.
