Policy Reversals in New Jersey Favor Offshore Wind, Solar, Efficiency, and Electric Cars

Press of Atlantic City:

Governor Phil Murphy’s Environment and Energy Transition Advisory Committee says the administration’s first priority should be making a clean energy future a reality in New Jersey.

It proposed four main priorities for the new administration last week.

“To achieve the Governor’s goal of 100% clean energy by 2050, the committee believes that an essential step is for the Governor to jumpstart NJ’s most promising new clean energy industry – offshore wind,” the advisory committee report said.

“Other urgent actions include stabilizing the state’s solar market and utilizing 100% of the Clean Energy Fund to advance energy efficiency, grow the clean energy economy, and drive down carbon emissions,” it said.

It also recommended the Governor utilize the recent Volkswagen settlements and the signing of the multi-state Memorandum of Understanding on Zero Emissions Vehicles “to serve as a springboard for the electrification of the state’s transportation system.”
