PSE&G to Hold Public Meeting on Transmission Line Route

PSE&G to Hold Public Meeting on Transmission Line Route

Fredon, NJ - Tomorrow PSE&G will host a public information session to provide a project overview of the proposed transmission line that will cut through Northern New Jersey.

"This power line will not only cause an ugly scar on our landscape but will undermine efforts to bring clean power to New Jersey and address global warming" said Jeff Tittel, Director of the New Jersey Sierra Club.

Representatives from both PSE&G and PJM (the agency who monitors the 13 state power grid) will be at the meeting.

The meeting will take place in the Civic Center in Fredon, from 5:30 p.m. until 8:30 p.m.

In early August PSE&G selected a route for its new - and unnecessary - power line through New Jersey's Highlands region. The transmission lines cut through some of our most prized public lands and environmentally sensitive places in New Jersey, like the Highlands Preservations Area, Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area, the Kittatinny Ridge and the Appalachian Trail. The new line will carry cheap, dirty coal power from Pennsylvania into New Jersey, increasing greenhouse gas emissions and air pollution.
