Hempstead Transmission

Reliability Projects

We're making upgrades to enhance our system's ability to withstand extreme weather and meet energy demands.

Project Overview

In the summer of 2018, PSEG Long Island completed the first phase of upgrades to the electrical capacity and storm resilience of its Hempstead Substation at 115 West Columbia Street. 

Phase II of this project will further upgrade the substation and the surrounding electric distribution system to ensure we can provide safe and reliable electric service to businesses and residents in the area, even in contingency situations. 

Phase II of the project will also involve upgrades to an overhead transmission line between the substation and the intersection of Atlantic Avenue and Hilton Avenue. This will provide additional high-voltage power to serve the substation’s increased capacity and increase system redundancy.
