GENERAL PERMIT 19 – Modification of Existing Electrical Substations
General Permit 19 authorizes the modification of existing electrical substations within the existing fence line to maintain substation and electrical load and system reliability, provided:
- The activities occur within the cleared, maintained portions of the site within the existing fenced area; and
- The activities do not have an adverse impact on special areas as defined at N.J.A.C. 7:7-9.
Full details are provided at N.J.A.C.7:7-6.19
If your project does not meet the requirements of the General Permit 19, it may qualify for another General Permit, Permit-by-rule, or an Individual Permit. Additional information on these permit types can be found on the Coastal Permitting page.
