PSE&G Investing In More Energy Efficient Transformers, Electrical Wires

PSE&G says it will use more energy efficient primary and secondary wires for new overhead installations, install more energy efficient transformers atop utility poles when new or replacement units are needed, and expedite the replacement of aging transformer banks with state-of-the-art units in some of its electrical substations.

According to the company, the cumulative impact of these changes through the year 2020 is expected to be a reduction of 100 million kilowatt hours and approximately 60,000 tons of CO2.

Ralph LaRossa, president and chief operating officer of PSE&G, said that the utility will make these investments throughout its service territory, an area that stretches from Bergen County to Camden County. It will involve the annual installation of about 891,000 feet of new or replacement wires and the replacement of sixteen aging transformer banks in substations statewide.

The company recently announced plans to replace 1,300 vehicles with hybrids and is making changes in other areas of its corporate fleet.

  1. ** Greenwashing Alert **

    PSE&G is required to install efficient transformers and lines anyway, and we who pay the bills pay for that. This action is not green, just business as usual.

    If PSE&G were spending shareholder money to upgrade to the most efficient transformers available … now that would be worthy of praise.
