How can we ensure environmental justice (EJ) and low- and moderate-income (LMI) communities benefit from clean energy advances in New Jersey?

 

The Murphy administration's transformative energy master plan envisions targeting underserved communities for various new incentives to ensure they too share in the touted benefits of a 21st century clean energy economy--improved air quality and thousands of long-term jobs. What needs to be done to bring community solar, expanded opportunities for reducing energy usage, and emerging technologies (such as energy storage) to these communities? How can community energy planning contribute to equitable clean energy outcomes? And what is the utility's role in these challenges?

 

Join us at this NJ Spotlight Roundtable as we explore potential paths in green energy development toward realizing environmental justice in New Jersey. This event will be livestreamed by our content partner, NJTV News.
