New York City, February 12, 2010 — The New Jersey Board of Public Utilities approved the Public Service Enterprise Group’s proposed upgrade to the Susquehanna-Roseland power transmission line in New Jersey.

The total cost for both the New Jersey and Pennsylvania parts of the 500-kilovolt line would be between $900 million and $1.3 billion and enter service by 2012. Ratepayers in the PJM service region will pay the costs for this transmission line.

PSE&G is responsible for building the New Jersey part of the line, which follows an existing right-of-way through 16 municipalities to the PSE&G substation in Roseland in Essex County. PPL Corp is responsible for the Pennsylvania portion.
