Shore GOP Takes On JCP&L

Casagrande, Handlin: “1000 times no to JCP&L rate increase”

By Art Gallagher |

Amy HandlinPublic hearings for JCP&L’s proposed rate increase started yesterday in Toms River. The Monmouth County hearing is on April 24 at the Freehold Township Municipal Building.

Assemblywomen Caroline Casagrande (R-11) and Amy Handlin (R-13) have already gathered 1300 constituent signatures on a petition opposing the JCP&L rate increase. The petition will be submitted to the Board of the Public Utilities at the Freehold hearing.

“Our constituents are tired of over promises and underperformances by their electric company and we’re going to make sure their voices are heard until JCP&L pulls the plug on this rate hike,” Handlin, R-Monmouth, said. “JCP&L’s customers have already paid the price by suffering through prolonged outages, so our response to their request is a simple and firm, ‘No.’”

  1. Break up the monopoly and allow competition…as much as it pains me, the towns should own the power lines and they towns can negotiate with power companies for service…prices move lower and service usually improves when there is competition
