|The City of Hoboken and Concord Energy Services will host a virtual community meeting on Tuesday, January 11, from 6 – 8 p.m. via Zoom regarding the new Hoboken Renewable Energy Program. |
The Hoboken Renewable Energy Program aims to provide residents with more clean green energy at a lower price point than what PSE&G is currently offering. It will also help the City achieve its goal of reaching net-zero energy by 2030 as outlined in the Hoboken Climate Action Plan.
Currently, the State requires electricity suppliers to source a minimum of roughly 23.5 percent of their load from green sources such as wind or solar energy. But, through the Hoboken Renewable Energy Program, residents can get an additional 10 percent of their electricity from renewable sources or opt-up to derive 100 percent of their electricity from green sources.
The program officially launches on March 1, and residents who do not wish to participate can opt out at any time at no cost.
To join the meeting tomorrow and learn more about the program, register at hobokennj.gov/renewablenergyzoom. The meeting will be recorded and held in both English and Spanish. The recording will be posted to the website at a later date.
