Technical Assistance for the New Jersey Renewable Energy Task Force
This report describes the technical assistance provided to New Jersey as the state further developed its renewable energy policies. In late 2002, Governor James E. McGreevey created the New Jersey Renewable Energy Task Force. The Task Force represented a broad spectrum of views on renewable energy and the state’s electric industry and was directed to increase the deployment of renewable energy in New Jersey. The National Council asked the Regulatory Assistance Project to assist New Jersey in addressing renewable energy credit concerns. This report recounts the issues and challenges faced by the Task Force. Where appropriate, the report identifies lessons applicable to other states and situations.
