McKeon & Jasey Bill to Promote Solar Energy Use Among Local Governments Gains Final Legislative ApprovalLegislation Would Allow Solar Panels on Preserved Open Space in Certain Circumstances
The Assembly on Thursday advanced legislation sponsored by Democrats John McKeon and Mila Jasey to make it easier for some municipalities to harness and use solar energy. The measure, which passed 58-10-2, now heads to the governor's desk.
"If local governments - whose personnel know their terrain best - conclude that dedicating a parking lot or a contaminated site to providing clean, locally-produced power is a good option for their residents, they ought to be able to pursue it without obstruction," said McKeon (D-Essex/Morris).
