New Jersey League of Conservation Voters would like to thank the state Senate for holding the bill S877 establishing a Nuclear Diversity Certificate program. This bill attempts to put forth a clean energy plan for the state, but would undermine its own goals by putting a cap on renewable energy investment. New Jersey LCV supports asking the BPU how to achieve clean energy goals at the lowest possible consumer cost, which has been their role historically, and creating an Energy Master Plan that takes common sense renewable energy goals into consideration.
Statement from Ed Potosnak Executive Director New Jersey League of Conservation Voters (New Jersey LCV):
We’re glad the bill was held because, in its current form, it undermines the Garden State’s clean energy future and the good jobs that go with it. Just because a bill can be scheduled for a vote, doesn’t mean it is ready to be taken up by the chamber. We look forward to working to ensure there is a bill to address the climate crisis and get New Jersey to 100% clean energy by 2050.
