affordable

TRENTON, NJConsumer Energy Alliance (CEA) today joined civic, labor, energy and business groups to launch Affordable Energy for New Jersey, a group working to ensure New Jersey residents continue to have safe, reliable and affordable energy choices in the wake of the recent release of the state’s Energy Master Plan (EMP).

“CEA is honored to be a part of this diverse Coalition to advocate for sensible, common-sense energy policies to ensure we can continue to have clean natural gas,” CEA Mid-Atlantic Director Michael Butler said. “This is crucial to meeting the energy needs and budgets of our friends and neighbors. New Jersey depends on natural gas to meet the vast majority of home heating and power demands, while keeping emissions down and helping provide a clean energy future.

“We can’t allow reckless policies to hurt consumer’s budgets, leave our most vulnerable out in the cold and our skilled tradesmen and women out of a job. For too long, posturing and irresponsible rhetoric has driven New Jersey’s policy discussions on natural gas and we are proud to join this great coalition to help dispel misinformation and advocate for a secure energy future for everyone in the Garden State.”
