Atlantic City Electric has grown the company’s presence in southern New Jersey by adding a new project management office in Glassboro.
The utility opened the office on Feb. 21 with a ribbon-cutting ceremony attended by employees, elected officials and Gloucester County Chamber of Commerce members.
The utility says the 30-employee location will house its project management teams that design, plan and execute projects to strengthen critical energy infrastructure and build a more resilient grid. With the office’s close proximity to Rowan University, the utility says the location has potential for future intern and career opportunities for Rowan graduates and will host a Rowan intern this summer.
The utility says the reliability projects led by this office are a core part of Atlantic City Electric’s strategic efforts to modernize the energy grid serving South Jersey and improve reliability and service for the company’s 560,000 customers.
The utility says that as a result of its ongoing efforts, customers continue to experience improvements in the reliability of their energy service. During the past five years, energy system upgrades and new innovative technologies have driven a 22 percent decrease in the frequency of electric outages.
