[TAKE THE TLS POLL IN EXTENDED ARTICLE] Two municipalities in Jersey Central Power & Light’s territory have filed requests with the state asking to switch to Public Service Electric & Gas, and the mayor of one says 14 other towns have expressed interest in doing the same, according to a report in the Star Ledger.
The requests were made by Warren Township and Robbinsville after a litany of complaints were lobbed at JCP&L, and to a lesser extent PSE&G, after extensive outages from Hurricane Irene and the Oct. 29 snowstorm.
JCP&L serves 1.1 million customers, mostly in northwestern parts of the state and areas south of Perth Amboy. PSE&G covers the other diagonal strip of the state, from Bergen County in the northeast to Mercer County in the west, and has 2.2 million customers.
Should Lakewood request the switch too?
