Backup Generator Tips from JCP&L
Backup generators can provide an emergency power supply, helping to keep important equipment running during a power outage. It’s important to make sure generators are properly installed and operated to prevent health and safety risks. Before installing a backup generator, follow all instructions in the manufacturer's written documentation, such as an operating manual, and all local building codes, especially regarding placement of the unit and safe electrical connections (check for local regulations by clicking “Planning and Zoning” on the top menu bar of this site).

Register for Electric Service Interruptions Updates
JCP&L customers who use electrically operated life support equipment or depend on private well water can register for updates on potential interruptions to their electric service, such as weather-related outages during the summer storm season.

Taxes can now be paid online by clicking on the blue tab "Pay Taxes Online" on the left menu bar. Please note, convenience fees apply, as listed on the payment page.
