NEWARK, N.J. (AP) - State regulators have approved a rate increase for Jersey City Power and Light.

The average customer will pay nearly $4 more a month, beginning New Year’s Day.

The 3.6 percent increase approved by the Board of Public Utilities is less than the 4.6 percent that JCP&L; had sought for its distribution rate. The money will be used to inspect lines and poles, maintain equipment and cut trees.

The increase will raise $80 million for the utility.
