The Hudson Project is responsible for nearly $180 million worth of reinforcements and improvements to the existing electric transmission system in northern New Jersey mandated by PJM to assure no loss of reliability due to the project. These upgrades promote reliability by facilitating the increased flow of power to meet demand and improving the stability of the grid during system emergencies. Examples include: repositioning and/or upgrading the conductors and cables of existing power lines; replacing or adding to existing equipment at local electric substations (switches, circuit breakers, transformers, etc.); and adding strategically-placed new devices that will improve the electric system performance during disturbances to the grid.
