Governor Christie’s Commitment To Renewable Energy Is Paying Dividends For New Jersey’s Environment:

 

  • New Jersey is 1st in the nation for installed commercial solar capacity, according to the Solar Energy Industries Association;
  • According to the Department of Energy, New Jersey has the 7th highest Renewable Energy Portfolio Standard in the nation at 22.5%;
  • Nationally, 14 states maintain no renewable energy standard whatsoever.
  • New Jersey has more than 16,000 solar energy projects installed across the state providing over 800 MW of installed capacity;
  • Governor Christie’s 2011 Energy Master Plan commits to no new coal-fired plants in New Jersey, ensuring that new generation capacity comes from cleaner sources;
  • Governor Christie has signed bipartisan legislation to strengthen and encourage the continued growth of New Jersey’s solar industry, while protecting ratepayers from increased costs. The new law couples an acceleration of the renewable portfolio standard (RPS) for solar energy with a reduction of the solar alternate compliance payments, meeting an important goal of the Governor’s 2011 Energy Master Plan (EMP), strengthening the solar market in New Jersey, and securing the state’s place as a national solar energy leader.
