One criticism behind hurricane Sandy is that New Jersey's utility infrastructure, including the poles that carry power across the state, are not the best of quality. Some suggest that weakness may have been a contributing factor to the many electric outages during the storm.
If you're a Jersey Central Power & Light customer, you could be paying more soon. The state's second-largest utility had filed for a rate increase request with the state Board of Public Utilities to raise rates by $31 million a year.
Just like after Hurricane Irene, the state Board of Public Utilities says they will evaluate how well power companies responded to the October nor'easter that created thousands of power outages, many of whom have yet to be restored.
The last of 6 public hearings has been held by the Jersey Board of Public Utilities - at Ramapo College in Mahwah - to gather testimony about how the state's utilities performed after hurricane Irene pounded the Garden state a couple of months ago.
