Project aimed at bringing solar energy to underserved communities now complete
The first project aimed at bringing solar energy to underserved communities in New Jersey is now complete.
Gov. Phil Murphy visited Perth Amboy on Thursday to mark the first community solar project finished under a pilot program started by his administration. The project allows people who could not afford or did not have access to solar energy to obtain it.
“Moving away our state from dirty fossil fuel energy has been a priority of this administration since day one,” Murphy said. “We are, remember, the densest state in the nation and so we need the creativity and flexibility that community solar can provide.”
The governor has long touted renewable energy as part of his plan to have New Jersey be 100% clean energy by the year 2050.
