Jersey Central Power & Light electricity rates
If haven’t signed up with an independent electricity supplier, Jersey Central Power & Light will provide you with a “Basic Generation Service” with rates set by the Public Utilities Commission. Customers receiving “Basic Generation Service” will likely pay a higher rate for energy than those who shop around for an energy plan.
Jersey Central Power & Light "Price to Compare"
This rate is your “Price to Compare.” You can use it as a comparison tool to help you determine your savings if you switch to another supplier. If another supplier’s price per therm is lower than the “Price to Compare,” you can save the difference by switching to that supplier. These rates include only the cost of producing the electricity. There are additional costs for the delivery of the electricity to your home or business. The delivery costs will remain the same no matter who supplies your energy. To report power outages or downed power lines, you should call Jersey Central Power's customer service number.
