      JCP&L is responsible for the wires to your home or business, and for the meter. Please note that customers are responsible for the service connection to their homes, which is usually near the roofline of the house to keep it safely out of reach. If a tree breaks your service line (the line from your pole to your home), JCP&L will fix it. However, if the connection to a house is pulled away or knocked down, the customer must arrange for an electrician to fix that damage before service can be restored.
