New Brunswick Moves Toward Renewable Energy at Lower Cost – Milltown/Spotswood NJ News – TAPinto

“The city is moving forward on a plan to bring more renewable energy resources to our community, a plan that will help reduce our carbon footprint and help keep New Brunswick clean, green and sustainable,” Mayor James Cahill’s office said in a statement released today.

The announcement comes just weeks after the activist group New Jersey Food and Water Watch submitted a petition with 669 signatures calling for a city ordinance establishing an “energy aggregation” program. Under that program, the city would seek a contract with an energy provider to supply electricity at a low rate.

This proposed ordinance also calls for the city to have a provider that obtains at least 30 percent of the electricity from renewable sources. The proposal calls from that percentage to increase, and reach 90 percent renewable sources by 2032.
