USA, New Jersey: PSE&G customers will benefit from numerous upgrades the utility is making to its transmission and distribution facilities to maintain reliability this summer.
The company has already replaced electrical equipment and upgraded some of the facilities, reports Market Watch.
Notable investment that will be in service this year includes $ 50 million to replace nine aging power transformers in order to maintain electric service reliability for customers in Middlesex, Somerset, Mercer and Burlington counties.
"We have a proven track record of continually investing in our transmission and distribution facilities, and this year was no different. It's a big part of what makes us one of the most reliable utilities in the country, and the most reliable in the Mid-Atlantic region year after year." said John Latka, vice president of electric operations for PSE&G. "Customers can rest assured that when temperatures start to rise and they power up their air conditioners, we'll be ready."
PSE&G crews will be ready to respond to service interruptions should they occur this summer.
