NEW JERSEY LCV TO HOST CLEAN RENEWABLE ENERGY CELEBRATION AT LEAGUE OF MUNICIPALITIES CONFERENCE
TRENTON – The New Jersey League of Conservation Voters (New Jersey LCV) will host a celebratory reception during the 107th Annual League of Municipalities Conference in Atlantic City, which is scheduled from Nov. 15 through Nov. 17.
The “Celebrate Clean Renewable Energy” reception will be held at the Izakaya Restaurant at the Borgata Hotel from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 16, 2022 following the education seminars. This free event will include live music, appetizers, an open cocktail bar, and some door and raffle prizes. The celebration will offer networking opportunities to individuals and organizations that are interested in renewable energy.
The event comes after the Murphy administration announced an increase in the state’s offshore wind targets from 7,500 megawatts of usage by 2035 to 11,000 megawatts of usage by 2040. New Jersey LCV also recently hailed the creation of a bill that would explore the benefits of wave energy, and the advancement of a bill that would stop the state’s pension fund from investing in fossil fuel companies, providing plenty of reasons to celebrate.
“Our reception is a time to recognize the clean energy advancements we’ve made in the last year, including the continued advancement of offshore wind and the passage of the historic Inflation Reduction Act, which will provide the needed funding to help mitigate climate change,” said Ed Potosnak, Executive Director, New Jersey LCV. “We are proud of the actions our elected officials, representatives, and partners have taken thus far, but this reception is also a reminder of the work that’s still needed to achieve a clean and renewable energy future.”
New Jersey LCV is proud to be joined by the following corporate sponsors: Attentive Energy, Anbaric, Atlantic City Electric, Atlantic Shores Offshore Wind, Community Offshore Wind, NRDC, Solar Landscape, Ørsted, Bird, and Rise Light & Power, as well as organizational sponsor New Jersey Wind Works.
New Jersey LCV has hosted a gathering during the League of Municipalities Conference for many years, but this year is special because of the momentum regarding renewable energy.
“Last year’s event commemorated our success surrounding offshore wind expansion and the future opportunities it can provide, especially for good local jobs for traditionally disadvantaged groups,” said Jason Krane, Senior Director of Development, New Jersey LCV. “Last year we topped 250 attendees, and everyone had a great time. We hope to provide a similar experience this year and look forward to seeing our guests.”
