Morristown, N.J. – Jersey Central Power &  Light (JCP&L) reminds customers to beware of telemarketers and door-to-door salespeople claiming to be employees of JCP&L or FirstEnergy.

         Some third-party salespeople are reportedly  using deceptive and/or aggressive tactics to convince customers to switch  electric generation suppliers. While JCP&L customers have the right  to choose an alternative generation supplier under New Jersey’s Energy  Choice Program, the company urges customers to be cautious if they are  contacted via phone or approached at their home, particularly if the salesperson  claims to be affiliated with JCP&L.
