JCP&L’s Montville-Whippany 230 kV Transmission Project Print E-mail

BACKGROUND:  On March 27, 2015, JCP&L filed an application with the Board of Public Utilities seeking to construct a transmission line between its substations in East Hanover and Montville.  This line will run through the Township of Montville and this section of the Township’s website is dedicated to providing the public with any updates regarding this application.

Update #8 (7/24/15): The parties have had an initial conference with Judge McGee, the Administrative Law Judge who will be hearing Montville Township's challenge to the JCP&L-Montville-Whippany 230kV Transmission Project  The Judge is asking the parties to come up with dates for discovery, the submittal of expert reports, and a timeline for the eventual hearing on this matter.  

While the Township has not yet agreed on any of these discovery dates, it is certain that no decision will be rendered in this case until sometime, at the earliest, in the second quarter 2016.  In the meantime the Township will continue to explore all possible experts and strategy to oppose this project.  We note that no other parties have requested to intervene and the Court has not yet established an intervening date. 

Update #7 (6/22/15): There are no new updates to report.

Update #6 (6/12/15):  This past Tuesday evening, the Mayor and Township Committee met in executive session with Mo Bonder, the Township’s expert engineer. Mr. Bonder outlined various potential issues relating to the upcoming litigation with JCP&L.

Update #5 (5/29/15):  This week the Mayor and Township Committee sent correspondence to other municipalities seeking support with respect to the Township's position opposing the Montville-Whippany 230 kV Transmission Project. In addition, the Township has scheduled an executive session with its expert, Mo Bonder, to discuss strategy going forward. The executive session will not be open to the public so that JCP&L will not be privy to the discussion as it relates to litigation strategy.

We will continue to post weekly updates here regarding this matter.
