“Gov. Murphy continues to set the bar higher in making New Jersey a national leader on clean energy, reducing our reliance on polluting fracked gas and other fossil fuels, and building a prosperous clean energy economy,” said Tom Gilbert, campaign director for ReThink Energy NJ and New Jersey Conservation Foundation.
