Bridgehampton to Buell New 69kV Underground Cable
PSEG Long Island will install a new 69KV transmission line in new underground conduit within the existing right of way between the Bridgehampton substation in Bridgehampton and the Buell substation in East Hampton. The new cable will run parallel to an existing overhead transmission cable already in operation. These upgrades will ensure that you and your neighbors receive safe, reliable electric power for years to come.
The new cable will run from the Bridgehampton substation on Bridgehampton – Sag Harbor Turnpike east within the existing transmission right of way until it reaches the Buell Substation on Cove Hollow Road in East Hampton.
Work is expected to begin 2022 and be completed by the summer of 2023.
