New Jersey Equitable Solar Roadmap

NJ Shines  •   December 8th, 2019 

The New Jersey Equitable and Resilient Solar + Storage Policy Roadmap “outlines how New Jersey can help 250,000 low-income families go solar by 2030, and install 400 megawatts of storage with $125 million per year in state funding.”

“Low-to-moderate income communities pay a disproportionate amount of their income on energy and are disproportionately affected by climate change and pollution, yet they remain locked out of the benefits of clean energy,” said Solstice co-founder and CEO Steph Speirs. “We live in an era where solar can be cheaper than fossil fuels without subsidies, so creating an equitable clean energy system is both the pragmatic and the ethical thing to do. Solstice was founded in New Jersey, and we look forward to working with the state and this coalition to put affordable community solar within reach of every household.”
