Trenton, NJ –        
Following Governor Phil Murphy’s release of Executive Order 8, New Jersey LCV Executive Director Ed Potosnak released the following statement:
“Governor Murphy’s Executive Order promoting offshore wind sends a clear message that New Jersey is serious about being the greenest state in the country, while also creating good paying, clean energy jobs in our state.”
“It’s hard to think of a more appropriate location than Atlantic City for this announcement - a city that is both on the frontlines of climate change and brimming with economic potential. Investing in clean energy, like offshore wind, is a win-win for our environment and jobs. We look forward to continuing to work with Governor Murphy to make his vision for a 100% clean energy economy in the Garden State a reality.”
