Support a 100% Clean Electricity Standard for a Cleaner, More Prosperous Future 

THE PROBLEM

In the densest state in the nation, New Jersey has a dirty electricity problem. Communities, particularly low-income, Black and brown residents are disproportionately suffering from air pollution and high rates of asthma from fossil fuel plants and trash incinerators. 

 

THE SOLUTION

 

To improve public health and avoid the worst impacts of climate change, NJ must reduce its reliance on dirty energy sources by using clean energy sources like solar and wind power. 

A Clean Electricity Standard (CES) is the best way to do that. 

 

NJ Senate bill 2978 would implement a CES which would require 100% of electricity sales to come from clean electricity sources by 2035. This electricity is what we use to power our homes, businesses, schools, and more. The bill requires the companies that generate and sell electricity to start making decisions that align with that goal. A CES will push out the dirtiest energy sources and incentivize clean energy.


 

BENEFITS OF A CLEAN ELECTRICITY STANDARD

 

A CES will improve air quality and public health by removing deadly pollution from fossil fuels, especially in disadvantaged communities. A CES will also create thousands of good-paying jobs and spur economic development opportunities right here in New Jersey. 

 

TELL YOUR SENATOR AND ASSEMBLY MEMBERS TO SUPPORT A 100% CLEAN ELECTRICITY FUTURE FOR NJ FAMILIES.
