New Jersey Integrated Energy Plan

 

New Jersey’s Integrated Energy Plan, commissioned by the state’s Board of Public Utilities and based on analysis by the Rocky Mountain Institute, finds that existing New Jersey policies will not be sufficient to meet the state’s clean energy goals. Modeling of the least-cost pathways to meet these goals finds that PJM-to-New Jersey transmission will need to be increased from 7 to 9 gigawatts in order to achieve the state’s 100 percent carbon-neutral by 2050 target. This enhanced transmission capacity, which will cost roughly under $20 billion between 2030 and 2050, will allow New Jersey to cost-effectively import electricity from new out-of-state wind and solar plants.
