The New Jersey Board of Public Utilities will conduct the third and fourth of its series of public stakeholder meetings on the Draft 2019 Energy Master Plan on Thursday, August 8 in Newark. The first and second meetings were held on July 17 in Trenton.
Through Executive Order 28, state Governor Murphy set an ambitious goal in June, setting New Jersey on the path toward 100% clean energy by 2050.
The plan defines clean energy as carbon-neutral electricity generation and maximum electrification of the transportation and building sectors to meet or exceed the Global Warming Response Act greenhouse emissions reductions of 80% relative to 2006 levels by 2050. The Master Plan is expected to create new jobs, industries, and workforce development as the state expands its green economy, providing new opportunities for New Jerseys residents and business community.
Both meetings this week will take place at Larsen Auditorium, Seton Hall Law School in Newark. The first meeting is scheduled to take place from 1:00 to 4:30pm. The second meeting will take place from 4:30 to 7:30pm. Additional information on the meeting can be found in the Public Notice.
Meetings five and six will be held on Thursday, September 12 from 1:00 to 4:30pm. and then again from 4:30 to 7:30pm in the Black Box Theater at The Kroc Center in Camden.
