New Jersey Takes Important Step Toward Meeting Clean Energy Goals
Trenton, NJ—The New Jersey Board of Public Utilities (NJBPU) has approved a petition filed by Atlantic City Electric Company (ACE) that modifies Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) and Power Sales Agreements (PSAs) between ACE and Chambers Cogeneration Limited and Logan Generating Company, the last two coal-fired electricity generation units in New Jersey. Under the agreements, coal-fired generation will end after a brief transition period.


“Over the last several years, New Jersey has seen a steady decrease in greenhouse gas emissions because of my Administration’s aggressive approach to mitigate climate pollution, power past coal, and expand our renewable energy resource mix,” said Governor Murphy. “These agreements today allow us to further shift New Jersey’s energy portfolio away from harmful coal generation and focus on clean energy technology.”


“The modified agreements are great news for the residents of New Jersey because at long last we are ending coal generation in our state,” said NJBPU President Joseph L. Fiordaliso. “A key goal of the Energy Master Plan is dramatically reducing greenhouse gas emissions and today’s action by the Board is a massive step in that direction.”


“However, this is only one piece of the larger clean energy puzzle that has been a cornerstone of the Administration’s efforts to combat climate change,” continued Fiordaliso. “We have taken tremendous strides towards meeting Governor Murphy’s goals through our offshore wind, solar, energy efficiency and electric vehicle programs. We are full steam ahead because there is no time to waste.”


As part of the agreements, ACE will make a series of negotiated, fixed monthly payments for the remaining term of the existing PSAs and PPAs which will be partly offset by payments to ACE customers from Logan and Chambers. Under this part of the agreement, ACE customers will save up to $30 million over the remaining term of the existing agreements.
