McKeon Bill to Expand State’s Community Solar Energy Program is Now Law

Assemblyman Applauds Governor Signing of A-4782

Assemblyman John F. McKeon issued the following statement in response to the signing of bill A-4782. The legislation revises the goal for annual capacity of solar energy projects to be approved under Community Solar Energy Program and allows certain customers to self-attest to income for program participation.

“With the passage of this bill, we are signing off on a greener future and energy equity for our communities. Rising temperatures, sea levels and precipitation levels underscore the undeniable impact of climate change within our state. The success of community solar in nearby towns is evident, and this legislation will extend opportunities to enjoy cleaner air and lower energy costs for thousands of New Jersyans.”
