Jersey Central Power & Light Enhances Electrical Service Reliability in Morris County, New Jersey

Jersey Central Power & Light has announced that it is enhancing electrical service reliability in Morris County, New Jersey, through a new technology installed as part of a Department of Energy Smart Grid program. These improvements are expected to reduce both the numbers of customers affected and length of service interruptions by up to 30%. Under the program, JCP&L has installed 15 advanced recloser devices on three circuits in the Morris County communities of Bernards Township, Harding Township, Morristown and Morris Township. Reclosers are a type of circuit breaker that automatically restores power after momentary service interruptions caused by tree branches or other objects contacting overhead lines. The new system also gives JCP&L's Regional Dispatch Office remote control access to the equipment, allowing them to switch circuits to help reduce the length of power outages.
