Wellwood Avenue Substation
A Reliability Project
At PSEG Long Island, it is our mission to provide safe, reliable and resilient energy for all the communities we serve.
Since 2007, upgrades and enhancements have been made to the five substations that currently provide energy to North Lindenhust. Each one of those substations is at or near capacity serving the communities in which they are located, and cannot be further upgraded to deliver power to the North Lindenhurst area. The new substation on Wellwood Avenue will directly benefit the local community by significantly increasing reliability and power quality. Without the substation, North Lindenhurst residents are at risk of prolonged service disruptions, especially during heat waves and storms. As always, PSEG Long Island is working closely with local officials on this project, keeping them informed and working to minimize potential disruptions.
The substation will be located on the west side of Wellwood Avenue between New Horizons Boulevard and Berry Street.
