Upgrading the Electric System in Your Neighborhood

Gloucester City- February 27, 2020- Mayor Daniel Spencer has announced that PSE&G will be upgrading the electric system in your neighborhood to continue to provide safe, reliable service. PSE&G will be replacing and upgrading utility poles beginning in early March 2020. The duration of the project is expected to continue through June 2021 with working hours from 7AM to 5PM, Monday through Friday, with some nights and weekends, as needed. PSE&G will provide additional notifications prior to the start of any construction on your street.

In advance of the overhead construction activities, they may trim and/or remove trees along the route in compliance with the Board of Public Utilities’ Vegetation Management Rules. This may include trees in the public rights of way and on private property. If you are the owner of a tree on private property, PSE&G’s Vegetation Management Department or one of their approved contractors will contact you.

For More Information:  Contact PSE&G at 1-800-606-0045 or visit the transmission website at

PSE&G Update:

On Sept. 11, 2019, the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities approved significant elements of the second phase of PSE&G’s Energy Strong program, clearing the way to further strengthen our electric and gas systems to withstand storms, improve reliability and significantly enhance resiliency. This program means that fewer customers will experience outages and, when outages do occur, they will be restored more quickly. This phase of Energy Strong includes a flood mitigation plan to fortify at-risk substations. Market Street Substation, constructed in the 1920s, is one of 16 stations included in the plan, due to location within FEMA AE flood zones. To mitigate the risk of flood impact, Market Street Substation will be eliminated and load safely redistributed to neighboring stations in Camden and Deptford. In preparation for the June 2021 station decommissioning, some work will take place in nearby neighborhoods from about March 2020 to June 2021. The work includes replacing the 4kV circuits on the poles that power the homes and businesses in Gloucester City with 13kV. Affected residents are scheduled to receive a letter from PSE&G about the overhead construction, work hours and traffic impacts.  As crews progress along the streets additional notifications will be made via door hangers, emails and recorded messages.  Once the overhead construction is completed, the Market Street Substation decommissioning will begin, about June 2021. Residents with questions or concerns are encouraged to call the project hotline at 1-800-606-0045.

May 8, 2019 : Gloucester City – Where Great Things are Happening!

According to new research, Gloucester City is recognized as the most affordable suburb closest to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The website states that there are actually affordable suburbs with low crime rates and reasonable commutes in the Garden State “that you’d like to live in.”

The article “Bargains in the Burbs: The 11 Most Affordable Options Outside the Big Cities,” by Lance Lambert on May 6, 2019, identified Hillside in Union County and Gloucester City in Camden County as two of the most affordable suburbs in the country that are located outside of major U.S. cities.

“You don’t have to go far from downtown Philadelphia to find a burb with some really cheap homes,” the website says. “Right across the Delaware River (the boundary between Pennsylvania and New Jersey) is Gloucester City, with its historic working-class communities and fantastic views of the Philly skyline. Many of the century-old homes here are two or three stories and can be found for under $100,000.”…

To determine the most affordable suburbs outside of major cities “that you’d like to live in,” looked at ZIP codes within the 11 largest metropolitan areas and then filtered out homes with a high crime rate and a commute into city centers that is more than an hour. From there, they ranked the remaining ZIP codes by median home list prices between April 2018 and March 2019.
