The Alternative Press reports: The New Jersey Board of Public Utilities (BPU) today approved a budget with $269 million in new funding to promote and deliver renewable energy and energy efficiency solutions to the state’s municipal, residential, non-profits, commercial and industrial ratepayers through New Jersey’s Clean Energy Program (NJCEP). Enhancements to current programs and new programs were also approved to assist small businesses, schools, municipalities and others increase energy savings, save money and protect the environment.
"The BPU is looking forward to helping more New Jerseyans save energy and money in 2010 through the Clean Energy Program, as well as continuing the fight against climate change through energy efficiency and renewable energy," said BPU President Jeanne M. Fox.
The 2010 Clean Energy Program will continue to pursue New Jersey’s Energy Master Plan goals of reducing projected energy use 20 percent by 2020 with strategies that encourage residents, non-profits, businesses and local governments to integrate energy management, renewable energy and energy efficiency throughout their homes, schools and facilities. Budgets for all the whole building programs (Home Performance with Energy Star for Homeowners, Direct Install for Small Businesses, Pay for Performance for Large Businesses and Local Government Energy Audit) have been increased significantly to assist in meeting this goal.
