The Right Goal, But the Wrong Path

New Jersey’s Energy Master Plan outlines a plan to reach 100% clean energy by 2050. While we all support this ultimate goal, the current plan will negatively impact most families in the Garden State.

  • The EMP will require whole-house conversions to electric heat that could cost New Jersey families $20,000 or more.
  • It will strain our already fragile electric grid and lead to increased winter power outages.
  • Existing heating sources like natural gas, propane and heating oil are already transitioning to low-carbon and no-carbon solutions.

Achieving the EMP’s objective without crippling families will REQUIRE a directional shift. Without it, New Jersey homeowners are in for increased expenses, fewer choices in how they heat and cool their homes, and a potentially dangerous strain on our electric grid.

Where the $20,000 conversion cost estimate comes from

While the Energy Master Plan quotes $4,000-$7,000 to convert an existing home to electric heat pumps, studies show the average cost is more like $20,000. You can check out these studies yourself.

Speak Up For Your Energy Future

The range of available low- and zero-carbon sources of energy is significant, and it’s growing daily. Natural gas, heating oil, propane, solar energy, wind energy and yes, electricity, all play a role in providing us with the flexibility we need in order to transition to a zero-carbon energy future.

Giving the people of New Jersey the freedom to choose the energy sources they use–and the knowledge to make informed decisions–rather than forcing them to accept only one option with an expensive price tag will create more opportunities for NJ homeowners and better outcomes for our environment.
