New Jersey is moving in the wrong direction. Our emissions are going up, not down, due to an over-reliance on gas-fired electricity generation, and multiple new unneeded gas pipelines are proposed for the state.
ReThink Energy NJ informs and empowers New Jersey citizens and decision-makers about the need for a swift transition to home-grown, efficient and renewable energy, and reduced use of dirty fossil fuels and pipelines that threaten our land, water, health and communities. We promote environmentally sound planning and siting for renewable energy infrastructure.

About the Campaign
ReThink Energy NJ was launched by New Jersey Conservation Foundation, The Watershed Alliance and the Pinelands Preservation Alliance along with citizen leaders, researchers, economists, lawyers and scientists.
This diverse group has joined together to provide the facts on fossil fuels, pipeline risks and the benefits of renewable energy and energy efficiency in the Garden State.
Here’s what former New Jersey governors have to say about ReThink Energy NJ:
Governor Thomas H. Kean
“I am pleased to see the launch of this important new campaign, ReThink Energy NJ, to help educate decision makers regarding the need for much greater scrutiny of new pipelines or fossil fuel infrastructure, and regarding the urgent need to move forward with clean, renewable sources of energy and energy efficiency.”
Governor Jim Florio
“It is unsettling how so many new pipelines have been proposed throughout our region without any clear assessment of the actual need, or without planning for their approval. If the Interstate Highway System was developed this way 50 years ago, we would have private companies building roads without regard to how many are needed or how they interconnect. Now is the time for us to focus our investments and public policy on advancing truly clean and renewable energy infrastructure.”
Governor Christie Whitman
“It is abundantly clear that our future depends on a successful transition to green energy and time is of the essence. With our leading educational institutions, innovative corporations and research facilities, New Jersey is poised to lead our country through this challenge. ReThink Energy NJ will serve as an important resource as the state, its residents and policymakers engage in this critical conversation.”
