JCP&L upgrades substation in Monmouth County

Sponsored by

As part of its ongoing efforts to enhance electric service reliability, Jersey Central Power & Light (JCP&L) is installing a massive new circuit breaker and transformer as part of a $1.2 million upgrade project at its Manalapan Substation.

The 230 kV circuit breaker, measuring 15 feet tall and weighing about 5 tons, will help limit the frequency and duration of power outages and meet the increased demand for electricity in the Monmouth County area.

The project also includes adding two new distribution circuits from the Manalapan Substation that will provide greater resiliency for JCP&L customers in the Manalapan and Millstone Township areas.

The circuit work includes adding new crossarms, fuses and transformers on existing poles, along with installing protective equipment such as animal guards and lightning arrestors.

This project is part of JCP&L's previously announced $251 million infrastructure investment in 2014 and is one of several included in JCP&L's "Energizing the Future" initiative to expand and enhance its transmission system in northern and central New Jersey to provide better service reliability for customers.
