NEW JERSEY LCV APPLAUDS GOVERNOR MURPHY ON EXECUTIVE ACTIONS TOWARD BEST CLEAN ENERGY GOALS IN THE NATION
TRENTON – The following is a statement from Ed Potosnak, Executive Director New Jersey LCV regarding the bold actions Governor Murphy announced today to move New Jersey closer to a 100% clean energy future.
“With today’s bold executive actions, Governor Murphy is again putting New Jersey at the forefront of the fight against climate change. Governor Murphy has set the most ambitious clean energy goal in the nation –100% clean electricity by 2035, which meets not only the moment, but the goal New Jersey LCV set in 2021. We are thrilled to see a roadmap to 100% clean electricity, meaningful commitments to electrify buildings, vans, trucks, and buses and updated coastal rules to protect families and businesses – all as we step up efforts to protect our communities from the impacts of climate change," said Ed Potosnak, Executive Director of the New Jersey League of Conservation Voters. “These important environmental policies will also position our state to be a leader in creating new union jobs in growing green industries even as we slash carbon pollution. Other states looking to combat climate change, protect our environment, and create good local jobs that can’t be outsourced must now take their cues from New Jersey.”
