June 29, 2020

On June 17th, NRDC submitted comments, along with a coalition of nine environmental non-profit groups, on the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities’ “New Jersey Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Ecosystem 2020 Straw Proposal.” The proposal aims to clarify utilities’ role in the electric vehicle space and set minimum filing requirements. The NRDC led comments, in part, encourage the Board to move forward with the current utility filings, consider equitable access to clean transportation, including medium- and heavy-duty vehicle electrification, and ensure electric vehicles are optimally integrated into the grid.
