Organizations from around New Jersey have joined together to form Clean Energy Action Now! (CLEAN), a campaign dedicated to increasing awareness of the health, economic, and climate benefits of an equitable clean energy future. We support policies that encourage and accelerate the adoption of solutions such as electric vehicles and all-electric homes powered by 100% clean energy by 2035. Rather than allow the polluting fossil fuel industry to stall New Jersey’s energy future, CLEAN works to move New Jersey forward faster toward a clean energy future that creates jobs and builds healthier communities.
