The company says the plans announced Tuesday will enhance and maintain service reliability throughout its 13-county service area. This represents about a $50 million increase compared to what the company spent on reliability infrastructure in the region last year.

Major projects scheduled for this year include completing and planning the construction of transmission lines in Monmouth, Ocean and Morris counties; completing a smart grid modernization project in Morris County and building a new substation in Hunterdon County.

The company also plans to upgrade 118 circuits, add new circuits, inspect and replace utility poles and perform tree trimming work on more than 3,400 miles of distribution and transmission lines.
