JCP&L, which came under heavy criticism for a lack of accurate information during Hurricane Sandy power restoration efforts, has unveiled a plan for better communication with towns during large outages.
To cover expenses incurred after Hurricane Irene and last year's surprise October ice storm and to pay for infrastructure upgrades, Jersey Central Power and Light (JCP&L) is requesting a $31 million a year rate increase.
Following a heated discussion by mayors of the short comings of JCP&L during Hurricane Sandy, a comprehensive list of proposed changes has been made for the utility to improve current and future restoration efforts.
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.
Jersey Central Power & Light is seeking permission from state regulators to boost its rates by 1.4 percent to improve its infrastructure and cope with losses from two major weather events that occurred last year.
