Municipalities in NJ, all of which can now tap a model ordinance to streamline approvals for electric-vehicle charging stations

Phil Murphy this week moved to hasten its clean-energy goals by penning a model ordinance designed to streamline and standardize the local approval process for charging stations for electric vehicles in each of New Jersey’s 565 municipalities.
