Environmentalists Urging New Jersey to Stay in RGGI

Flickr User Chang'r

 A bill is heading through the Legislature that would keep New Jersey in the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI).  Environment New Jersey is one of several groups supporting the measure after releasing a report today which touts the benefits the program has had thus far on the Garden State.

“The average resident is saving 25 dollars on their electric bill while the average business is saving 181 dollars,” said Matt Elliot, Clean Energy Advocate with Environment New Jersey.  “When you add it all up, RGGI is saving about 151 million dollars on energy bills.”

The report also finds RGGI has added significant value to New Jersey’s economy by supporting local jobs and helping reduce air pollution.
