Statement from Thomas R. Churchelow, Esq. Senior Director, Government & Public Affairs, New Jersey Utilities Association on Governor Murphy’s Draft Energy Master Plan

"New Jersey’s investor-owned electric, natural gas, water, wastewater, and telecommunications companies provide New Jersey residents  and businesses and so many others with essential utility services that we rely on every day. It is the mandate of our members to provide safe, reliable, and reasonably priced service to all those who live, learn, and conduct business in this great state. Our members have also been tasked with meeting the requirements of the Clean Energy Act of 2018 and planning for the clean energy future envisioned in this Draft Energy Master plan. Governor Murphy has certainly set ambitious goals and New Jersey’s investor-owned utilities are not merely following a trend but have been leaders in investment in renewable energy and they are also leaders in energy efficiency initiatives.
