Brad Meyer of Morris Plains is one of the newest line and substation workers to work at JCP&L.
Meyer joins 35 other new employees who were recently hired by the power company. The new workers will work out of service centers and substations across the company’s service territory.
All new workers just graduated from JCP&L's Power Systems Institute, a two-year training program that provides an associates degree in applied science.
According to a statement released by JCP&L, these new employees will work with seasoned crews to perform maintance activities and power restoration work when needed.
“These individuals are important additions to our workforce, complementing the company’s capital investments designed to improve our distribution and transmission systems,” president of JCP&L Don Lynch said in the statement. “Together, these efforts add up to better customer service and service reliability.”
JCP&L has hired 174 new workers in the past eight years who also have completed the PSI program.
