Join the fight! No monster power lines in Monmouth County!
JCP&L has officially filed for approval to construct a
10-mile-long, 230kV high voltage power line directly
alongside the NJ TRANSIT North Jersey Coast Line, from
the Matawan-Aberdeen rail station to the Red Bank rail station.
Their proposed plan calls for over 100 monopoles to be put
alongside the train tracks, approximately 500 feet apart, to support a
230,000 volt power line. The poles would range in height from
130’ (13 stories) high to 210’ (21 stories) high. The project is estimated
to cost $111 million, and this cost will be passed on to the ratepayers of
NJ via electric rate increases on monthly bills.
The proposed route runs through a very densely populated area of
Monmouth County, NJ -- there are over 400 families whose homes
directly about the route, and thousands more who
live within very close proximity. The route also runs alongside
3 elementary schools, 2 senior living communities, and a nature preserve;
and through a registered historic district.
