Susquehanna Roseland Project

The Susquehanna Roseland Project involves a new 500-kV transmission line that runs north from Berwick, PA past Wilkes-Barre and Scranton, then east to Hawley and southeast to Bushkill, where it crosses the Delaware River.  PPL built the 101-mile Pennsylvania portion of the line, and Public Service Enterprise Group built the 45 miles in New Jersey. The two companies partnered to build a four-mile segment through National Park Service lands on the border of the two states. The purpose of the project was to improve reliability. The cost of the project is divided between Public Service Electric & Gas ($790m) and PPL Corp. ($630m). The project was energized mid-2015.
