TRENTON, NJ- Ed Potosnak, Executive Director of New Jersey League of Conservation Voters, released the following statement today on the news that B.L. England electric generating plant (BLE) will not repower and will not be using the South Jersey Gas (SJG) pipeline:

"Governor Murphy and his administration have steadfastly stood by their commitment to 100% clean energy by 2050, and because of that, we are beginning to see the makings of a fossil-free New Jersey. We are thrilled to see the decision to withdraw from the ongoing litigation and the letter from the Attorney General's office asking the court not to move forward. Thank you to the administration and all of the groups who fought tirelessly to stop this unnecessary pipeline, especially Pinelands Preservation Alliance."
