New Jersey Smart Meters

Program Overview

JCP&L will begin smart meter installations next year on customers’ homes and businesses in several locations throughout our service area. The Company’s plan as approved by the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities will modernize the electric distribution system in New Jersey with the installation of 1.1 million smart meters.

This step will enable automated meter readings and may enhance our ability to respond to outages faster and more efficiently. Plus, in the future, you will have access to more detailed energy information through our online Home Energy Analyzer tool that will help you better understand your electricity use – which means you can then make informed decisions on how to manage and control your electricity consumption.

Be assured that the smart meter technology being implemented has been rigorously tested and proven by manufacturers to be accurate, safe and secure in systems throughout the country.
