Now it’s New Jersey’s turn.
“Governor Murphy and the New Jersey DEP must deny the permit applications for the NESE project.” said Kin Gee, President of Consumers Helping Affect Regulation of Gas & Electric (“CHARGE”). “NESE is another example of an energy/utility project that was filed under pretext with significant collateral damage to New Jersey residents and the environment with no benefit to the State of New Jersey or New York.”
What a great way to start the weekend!
