New Jersey voters have historically supported renewable energy, but yesterday, the Board of Public Utilities killed the state’s only offshore wind farm project.

The timing could be better. Some state legislators are considering aggressive new targets for renewable energy — bumping up to 80 percent the amount of power that would come from renewables by 2050, a big jump from the current goal of 22.5 percent.
