Reducing energy use is the surest, most direct way to reduce greenhouse gases, slow climate change, and lower customer energy bills. It also has the benefit of maintaining the reliability of the power grid.
But how do government and private industry promote the importance of energy efficiency? What are the policy obstacles and opportunities for reducing energy use? What will be the role of public utilities in this effort? Who will pay for efficiency upgrades and how can costs be mitigated for ratepayers?
These and other questions will be explored in this free NJ Spotlight breakfast event, featuring a keynote address by PSEG Chairman, CEO, and President Ralph Izzo and a panel discussion with state officials, public utilities’ representatives, and other advocates.
Admission: Free | RSVP Required.
