Washington, DC – Today, PSE&G announced the Solar-4-All program to invest nearly $800 million over 5 years on solar power production in its New Jersey service area. “I am pleased by PSE&G’s plan to invest millions of dollars in the development of solar power for New Jersey through the Solar-4-All program. This investment will install solar panels throughout our neighborhoods and nearly triple New Jersey’s current solar power production. Progressive investments like these are crucial to establishing sustainable domestic energy sources, meeting New Jersey’s ambitious energy goals, and creating good paying jobs locally,” said Congressman Sires. “While there is still much work to be done to ensure a healthy and productive future for our children and our planet, every solar panel that is installed reduces CO2 emissions and positively impacts our environment. Investments in renewable energy sources not only improve our environment, but can stimulate our economy and potentially lower our energy bills,” added Congressman Sires.
