One of the Top Utilities for Green Solar Power. JCP&LJersey Central Power & Light (JCP&L), a FirstEnergy (NYSE: FE) electric utility operating company, has been recognized as one of the top 10 utility companies in the nation for the installation of new solar power to its infrastructure.

A report by the Solar Electric Power Association (SEPA) ranks JCP&L ninth with 22.9 megawatts (MW) of newly installed solar power technologies in 2010. The SEPA report analyzed utility solar electric markets in the United States focusing particularly on the top utilities that are driving solar growth.

“We are pleased that our efforts to encourage the development and expansion of the solar energy market have been successful,” said JCP&L President Don Lynch. “Our work with the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities, the Division of Rate Counsel and the renewable energy community to develop and implement a Solar Renewable Energy Certificate (SREC) program has helped to increase the pace of solar energy projects.”

The SEPA report also recognized the eastern region of the United States as a major solar market making up 37 percent of the nation’s 2010 annual solar capacity with three New Jersey electric delivery companies, including JCP&L, in the top 10.

“SEPA has acknowledged the important role that New Jersey plays in the country as a leader in recognizing and promoting renewable energy technology. Our state’s success will lead to the continued integration of solar energy capacity,” said Lynch.

FirstEnergy is a diversified energy company dedicated to safety, reliability and operational excellence. Its 10 electric distribution companies comprise the nation’s largest investor-owned electric system. Its diverse generating fleet features non-emitting nuclear, scrubbed baseload coal, natural gas, and pumped-storage hydro and other renewables, and has a total generating capacity of approximately 24,000 megawatts.
