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 #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.
