JCP&L seeks rate increase as it rebuilds from Sandy

Jersey Central Power & Light, in Morristown, on Friday filed a rate request to recover costs associated with rebuilding its electrical infrastructure following Hurricane Sandy.

If approved by the Board of Public Utilities, JCP&L’s rate filing would result in about a 4.5 percent overall rate increase for an average JCP&L residential customer using 650 kilowatt-hours of electricity, the company said. The average monthly bill would increase from $98.10 to $102.54, or $4.44, for a customer using 650-kilowatt hours of electricity.

The company announced last week it plans to spend $200 million to harden its infrastructure against future storms.
