New Jersey’s Energy Master Plan (NJEMP) requires zero-carbon fuels by 2050. While we support efforts to reduce carbon emissions, the NJEMP would require all space and water heating to be electric, eliminating affordable natural gas and propane as options. This will put the gas hearth industry in jeopardy and cost consumers $20,000 to switch to electric heat in their homes.
Senator Vin Gopal has announced that he will introduce legislation after the election prohibiting the N.J. Department of Environmental Protection and the N.J. Department of Community Affairs from adopting regulations mandating solely electric heat.
Take action now by sending an email via this link to your state Senator and Assembly member urging them to support Senator Gopal’s bill.
