Eustace, Benson and Zwicker Bill to Establish Solar Power Incentive Program Released by Assembly Panel

Legislation Provides Financial Incentives to Owners of Solar Panel Systems,
Reduce Electric Grid Congestion
(TRENTON) - Legislation sponsored by Assembly Democrats Tim Eustace, Daniel Benson and Andrew Zwicker to establish the "Solar Power Incentive Program" to provide financial incentives to owners of solar panel systems and to also help reduce electric grid congestion throughout the state was approved by the Assembly Telecommunications and Utilities Committee on Thursday.

"Many families are making eco-friendly choices to install solar panel systems," said Eustace (D-Bergen, Passaic). "Families choosing to use solar panels are cutting energy costs and, most importantly, moving the state toward a greener, more environmentally responsible future. We should continue to encourage the use of solar power through incentive programs such as this one."
