A new $7.3 million substation in Tewksbury, N.J., is in service for utility Jersey Central Power & Light, a subsidiary of FirstEnergy Corp.

FirstEnergy says the substation will provide greater redundancy to the local electric system and improve service reliability for customers. According to the company, the substation converts high voltage from transmission lines to lower voltages that are used to serve businesses and residents in the Tewksbury area.

FirstEnergy adds that the new substation automatically switches customers to another circuit when an outage occurs, restoring service sooner.
