12 Mar: Smith Package To Promote Renewable Energy Advances In Assembly

TRENTON – A bill sponsored by Senator Bob Smith which would promote renewable energy systems in New Jersey homes was unanimously approved today by the Assembly Environment and Solid Waste Committee.

“As heating and energy costs continue to rise, many homeowners are looking to renewable energy to offset or eliminate the cost of maintaining their homes,” said Senator Smith, D-Middlesex and Somerset, the Chair of the Senate Environment Committee. “Home renewable energy systems have the added benefit of conserving natural resources, reducing our reliance on foreign oil, and taking advantage of cleaner energy sources. New Jersey should do everything it can to support homeowners who are making the effort to go green.”
