New Jersey’s governor issued orders to accelerate 100% clean energy by 2035 and offer new incentives for heavy-duty electric vehicles.
In three executive orders signed Feb. 15, Gov. Phil Murphy outlined six major efforts to direct the state toward a clean energy future.
“These bold targets and carefully crafted initiatives signal our unequivocal commitment to swift and concrete climate action today,” Murphy said. “We’ve turned our vision for a greener tomorrow into a responsible and actionable roadmap to guide us, and it’s through that pragmatic, evidence-based approach that we will ultimately arrive at our destination.”
By enacting Executive Order No. 315, Murphy accelerated the state’s goal for 100% clean energy by 2035, up from 2050. It also defined clean energy as 100% of the electricity sold there coming from clean sources by Jan. 1, 2035.
