JCPL Energy Choice
If you’re a Jersey Central Power and Light customer, you used to only have the option of getting both your electricity delivery and supply from the utility. The price that you paid was locked in and determined by JCP&L.
In 1999, the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities passed energy deregulation legislation giving residents of the Garden State more options with Energy Choice. Energy Choice means that you can compare electricity providers and find lower rates than what you’re currently paying by taking advantage of competition between electric companies.
Comparing electricity providers can be a confusing process if you’re not careful. ElectricityRates.com eliminates the confusion by bringing you the best rates from leading providers so you can feel confident in your choice.
