Ground Breaks on $600 Million Natural Gas-Fired Project in NJ

Sewaren 7 Generating Station

PSEG Power broke ground on the 540-MW Sewaren 7 combined-cycle power plant in New Jersey.

The $600 million Sewaren 7 will replace the existing Sewaren Switching Station with more efficient technology. The plant is set for full operations in summer 2018.

PSE&G has spent $125 million over the last three years hardening and upgrading the new Sewaren Switching Station after it was devastated by Superstorm Sandy. Improvements included raising electric distribution equipment above new FEMA flood guidelines; and installing new, elevated transmission facilities needed to maintain electric system reliability.
