Jersey Central Power & Light (JCP&L) says it will start work on 17 transmission projects over the next six months in its northern and central New Jersey service areas.

The multiyear, $200 million local infrastructure and transmission enhancement (LITE) program, which began in 2011, addresses the state's growing demand for electricity and provides key enhancements to the transmission system. To date, 24 projects have been completed.

Overall, more than $8 million of LITE projects are scheduled to be completed this year, including the following:

- Upgrading an existing line and adding a new 115 kV line to increase capacity and meet growing demand in Sussex County;

- Adding five new 34.5 kV breakers and a 34.5 kV capacitor bank at the Van Hiseville Substation in Jackson to increase peak capacity and reliability; and

- Adding new, higher-rated wire, insulators and lightning arrestors to a 34.5 kV line connecting the Oceanview Substation in Monmouth County to the Neptune Substation in Monmouth County.
