Improving Energy Efficiency in New Jersey: NJ Spotlight Roundtable

There’s general agreement a new state law could lead to big reductions in energy use and big savings for customers, but there’s far less agreement on how those goals will be achieved

Few disagree with the proposition that energy efficiency is a win-win-win — for utilities, for their customers, and for the environment. And yet increasing energy efficiency in New Jersey is proving to be a challenge.

Once a leader in energy conservation, New Jersey is now in the middle of the pack among states in convincing customers to use less electricity and natural gas. The conservation incentives are clear: Customers save money, utilities purchase less fuel, and pollution levels harmful to the public and that contribute to climate change are reduced.

A new state law aims to spur greater energy conservation by putting the onus on the state’s electric and gas utilities. But is that the right model? That question was tackled at a June 7 NJ Spotlight roundtable.
