Benefits of Membership
In order to maintain its status as a national leader in energy development, New Jersey needs to foster a sustainable in-state energy industry that includes new generation, manufacturing, economic development and job creation. Providing energy industry employment opportunities for New Jersey’s highly trained workers and skilled tradesmen is key to encouraging growth and improving our State’s competitive edge.
As one of our programmatic goals, the NJ Energy Coalition provides advocacy for initiatives in our state that will provide new development and new jobs in the energy-related fields, including renewable energy projects, energy efficiency improvements on buildings, construction of new generation facilities and transmission upgrades. Ensuring that our existing power facilities stay in operation is also important to this goal.
