JCP&L’s Monmouth County Reliability Project Open HousesJune 23, 2016 -
Three open houses were held in the Monmouth County area to answer public questions about the proposed 75-million dollar Monmouth County Reliability Project.
The purpose of the open house is to engage in dialogue with customers to allow customers that live along the route to come in to learn about the project to see all of the experts that are involved from Jersey Central Power & Light and directly work with them to have their questions answered.
The open houses for the community were held at Brookdale Community College in Lincroft, VFW Post 2179 in Port Monmouth, and North Centerville Volunteer Fire Company in Hazlet in June. JCP&L’s Monmouth County Reliability Project is meant to enhance service and modernize the electric system in the Jersey Shore area.
The plan includes a new 10-mile, 230-kilovolt transmission line and substation enhancements. The purpose of the line is to add reliability and redundancy to serve the residents in the area.
