Following is a statement from JCP&L on 5/7/15: "JCP&L will be performing reliability work on Mine Hill Road in Washington Township during the month of May. The project includes replacing existing 40 foot poles with 45 foot poles, increasing the voltage from 4.8kv to 12.kv and transferring load from the Furnace Brook substation to the Washington substation. We have contracted with Lewis Tree Service to perform tree trimming and tree removals where needed for approximately 1.6 miles starting in Washington Township just beyond the golf course into Oxford Township. In addition, we will be creating a connection between the two substations that will provide additional flexibility to allow for faster restoration of service in the event of outages. Pole replacements have started in Oxford and will start in Washington Township within the next two weeks."

JCP&L would like to make you aware of a long-running nationwide utility scam that is again being reported in New Jersey. The scam involves a caller posing as an electric company employee threatening to shut off power unless an immediate payment is made using a pre-paid debit card such as a Green Dot card. JCP&L does not endorse the use of Green Dot cards as a bill payment method. If a customer receives a call from someone demanding payment of their electric bill by using a Green Dot card, they are being scammed and should report the crime to local authorities. Although JCP&L representatives sometimes do call customers to remind them that a payment is past due, they explain how a payment can be made using one of the following established payment options: Direct Debit, Automated Phone Payment (1-866-569-4770), Authorized Payment Location (www.firstenergycorp.com/forms/paymentagencies) or by mail. Any customer who has doubts about a call from someone claiming to be from JCP&L, especially one demanding immediate payment, should call JCP&L's customer service number at 1-800-662-3115.
