Victory: New Jersey passes renewable energy legislation

Big victory for renewable energy in New Jersey! Thanks to our allies and CREDO activists in the state, Gov. Phil Murphy recently signed a “historic measure to revive renewable energy in New Jersey.”

More than 2,600 CREDO members in New Jersey signed our petition urging the state legislature to stand up for solar power. Now, New Jersey will help to lead the way in promoting clean, renewable solar power to its residents by creating New Jersey’s first community solar program and ramping up New Jersey’s Renewable Portfolio Standard – the rule that requires power companies to include an increasing percentage of renewable energy in the energy they sell.

To all our New Jersey CREDO members, thank you for your activism.

We also want to thank our allies at Vote Solar, Earthjustice, the Coalition for Community Solar Access (CCSA), the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) and Sunrun who have been working hard on the ground in New Jersey and advocating to move this legislation forward.
