New Jersey utility companies have begun shutting off service to homes delinquent in payment, following the expiration of the utility shutoff moratorium imposed by Governor Murphy in 2020.
JCP&L says that they give customers ample warning before shutting off their electric service, including a physical visit by a company representative to the property in question before shutting off the electric.
Another company servicing New Jerseyans that has begun shutting off residents’ utilities is PSE&G, whose spokeswoman said that there are about 275,000 customers who are at risk of losing service.
Both companies say they have been warning their customers for months that the moratorium will be expiring, giving them enough time to either pay their bill or enroll in flexible payment plans if they are unable to make a full payment.
JCP&L customers who are past due on their bills can call 800-662-3115.
