JCP&L Outage Info Available Through New App

Downloadable app comes after customers demand better communication following Superstorm Sandy.

The parent company of Jersey Central Power and Light is touting its new mobile phone app, which the company says could be helpful during times of power outages.

The app launched by First Energy Corp. is free for its customers in the five states the company’s utilities serve, and offers quicker access to outage maps, simplified reporting of outages, and access to personal account information.

“Our new smartphone app and mobile website make it easier for our customers to stay in touch with us and conduct every-day transactions when they’re on the go, whether it’s reporting a power outage or paying a bill,” Ronald I. Green, vice president of Customer Service, said. “The new tools also make our simple and secure online bill payment programs even more convenient.”

The app also offers “click-to-call” for customer service and links to the company’s social media sites and the company’s website.

Many New Jersey residents have been demanding better communication on power supply outages from the company, especially after Superstorm Sandy knocked power out for hundreds of thousands of residents for more than a week. The company was also directed to develop better communications by the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities after 2011’s Hurricane Irene also caused widespread and sustained power outages.
