Street Lights on the Blink?  Tell JCP&L so repairs can be made.
Here are the best ways to report a streetlight outage:

  • Call us at 1-888-LIGHTSS (1-888-544-4877) and say “streetlight” after the greeting.
  • Use this link to report the lighting problem online.
  • When reporting an outage, let us know:
  • Your name and phone number (in case we need more information).
  • Address where the streetlight is located (nearest house or business address and the nearest cross street).
  • Number on the utility pole.
  • What is wrong with the streetlight (damaged pole; broken light fixture; light is off at night, on during the day, or flickers).
