JCP&L expands substation in $10 million project

Jersey Central Power & Light (JCP&L) plans to build a $10 million substation expansion in Hunterdon County to enhance customer service reliability and meet the growing demand for electricity in the area. 

The construction project involves adding new 230-kV circuit breakers, transformers and other equipment to the existing Rocktown Substation in West Amwell Township.

 

A new, half-mile transmission line loop also will be built as part of the project to connect the expanded section of the substation with a nearby 230-kV transmission line. 

A key function of the substation is to use the circuit breakers and transformers to reduce the transmission line voltage to a level that can be used by local customers.

The West Amwell Planning Board recently granted preliminary approval for the Rocktown Substation expansion project.
