In its continuing efforts to modernize and enhance the safety and reliability of its natural gas distribution system, South Jersey Gas recently started work on Phase II of its Camden County Reliability Project.
The overall $75 million, three-phase project will replace and modernize vintage and aging infrastructure that runs through portions of Gloucester Township, Pine Hill and Winslow Township. The project aims to improve gas service reliability to Camden and Burlington counties.
Expected to last from June until February 2023, and approved by the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities, this $25 million portion of the project will reduce greenhouse gas emissions while also addressing low pressure and supply issues to ensure that customers have access to the energy they need even during severely cold weather events.
“This project is a perfect example of how South Jersey Gas uses infrastructure enhancements to serve the dual purposes of improving service for our customers while helping our state and region meet their clean energy goals,” Brent Schomber, president and chief operating officer of South Jersey Gas, said in a statement.
