JCP&L Service Upgrade Print E-mail

(NEW) (July 24) At their July 22 meeting, the Township Committee approved a Petition for residents to consider which calls for JCP&L to transfer their franchise rights for Montville Township to Public Service Electric & Gas (“PSE&G”).  Montville Township agrees that PSE&G possesses the infrastructure and ability to service the residents of the Township.    

The Petition can be downloaded here from the Township’s website.  Copies of the Petition can also be picked up at Town Hall at either the Recreation Department or Clerk's office.  Petitions will be collected and copies will be mailed to JCP&L, the Board of Public Utilities, and various elected officials.  Residents are encouraged to sign the Petition and return it to the Township offices by Monday, August 11, 2014 using one of the following methods:

(July 2) On June 30th, JCP&L provided their responses to the questions submitted by the Township Committee and residents.

(June 26) The Township Committee has submitted a letter to the Board of Public Utilities objecting to JCP&L's plan to submit their application to the BPU immediately upon making their selection of a route and without providing an opportunity for public discussion of and objections to their selected route.  The Committee has requested that the BPU require that JCP&L conduct public information sessions with those who would be impacted by the selected route prior to making their submission to the Board.

(June 18) JCP&L has acknowledged receipt of the questions submitted by Montville Township regarding the proposed transmission line from Montville to East Hanover.  JCP&L has indicated they will answer these questions within a 2-week timeframe – specifically, on or before June 30.  Once Montville Township has this information, it will be posted on the Township’s website.

(June 11) During the meeting with representatives of JCP&L, it was announced that the township will submit questions regarding this project to JCP&L.  The questions will be answered and both the questions and answers will be published here on this website.  In addition to the questions posed at the meeting, questions were also submitted via e-mail after the meeting.

(June 10) Representatives from JCP&L will be at tonight's Township Committee Meeting at 8:00pm at the Municipal Building, 195 Changebridge Road.  They will briefly outline their initial November 2013 report “Energizing the Future”: Ensuring Service Reliability for JCP&L Customers - Proposed Transmission Line from Montville to East Hanover, Morris County.  However, since JCP&L has not made a final decision on the exact location of their proposed upgrades, they noted that they are not in a position, at this time, to field questions during tonight’s meeting.  Some facts on the proposed upgrades: The Montville-Whippany Reinforcement Project, a seven-mile, 230-kilovolt upgrade of service between their existing substation on Changebridge Road in Montville and one in East Hanover.  Their recommended route for the upgrade would follow the existing path of the recently upgraded PSE&G service through Montville Township.  However, there are alternate routes being considered that would take the lines, on their 100' high poles, through other areas of the township.  This will be an opportunity for township residents to hear information about the plans before final decisions on the project are made.  Additional information about the project is available on the website of First Energy, JCP&L's parent company.
