In May 2018, Governor Phil Murphy signed Executive Order No. 28 directing the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities and other state agencies to develop the 2019 EMP, which is to be completed by June 2019. The 2019 EMP focuses on putting New Jersey on a path to achieve 100 percent clean energy by 2050, growing New Jersey’s clean energy economy, ensuring reliability and affordability for all customers, reducing the state’s carbon footprint, and advancing new technologies for all New Jersey residents.
