How Does the Montville and Surrounding Communities Benefit?

The proposed 230-kilovolt (kV) transmission line, known as the Montville – Whippany Reinforcement Project, will support the community during times of service disruption or peak energy usage to enhance service reliability, add redundancy to the system and meet the growing demand for power.

The redundancy provided by this line reinforces the service to more than 80,000 customers in Montville and the surrounding communities. This new line allows JCP&L to effectively reroute energy to better service customers in Montville and the surrounding communities and reduce the frequency and duration of outages.
