Our customers in Monmouth County will see numerous benefits. Building this project will improve service reliability for nearly 214,000 residential and commercial customers. Modern technologies will deliver real-time information about system conditions so we can better monitor and respond to customer power needs. Together with substation enhancements and the new transmission line, this technology will help reduce the length and frequency of service disruptions while delivering the additional power our customers require.
Currently, an electricity disruption between Aberdeen and Red Bank would result in a significant power outage affecting customers across the county. The proposed transmission line provides another supply of electricity into the area, enhancing reliability for our Monmouth County customers.
