Private Investment Creating Green  Jobs in Newark, NJ
1:30 p.m.
Sunoco Logistics Newark Terminal
436 Doremus Avenue
Newark, NJ 07105
Please join Sprague Energy, Sunoco Logistics, the NJ Clean Cities Coalition and other invited guests for the official opening of the newest and most expansive multiproduct biodiesel/Bioheat loading terminal in New Jersey. The facility affords commercial users and residential heating fuel consumers potential lower energy costs, cleaner air, reduced dependence on foreign oil, and a pathway for entities to reduce their carbon footprint, while providing fuel suppliers a means to meet U.S. EPA RFS#2 regulations. Biodiesel and Bioheat are renewable and sustainable fuels and the only nationally available advanced biofuel as recognized by the U.S. EPA. The availability of the biofuel will overcome infrastructure hurdles to provide a convenient centralized fueling location with seamless product loading.  RSVP: As the terminal’s security is regulated by the Department of Homeland Security and the Coast Guard, your RSVP to the event is required. Please respond to Margaret Bedenbaugh, mbedenbaugh@spragueenergy.com.

Building New Power Plants In A Deregulated Market
Part of NJ Spotlight Roundtable Series: New Jersey's Thirst for Power
11:45 a.m.-1:30 p.m.
Trenton Masonic Temple
100 Barrack St
Trenton, NJ 08608-2008
Lunch will be served / Seating is limited/ Register here
New Jersey has some of the highest electricity prices in the country, which some argue have become a drag on the local economy and a reason for manufacturers and other large employers to leave the state. Does New Jersey have enough power capacity to serve its needs -- now and in the future? Will a reduction in power grid congestion lower prices for ratepayers? Should the state subsidize the construction of new power plants in order to increase capacity? Will subsidies jeopardize competitive wholesale markets? Are there other solutions to the problem? Join Tom Johnson, NJ Spotlight’s energy writer and co-founder, as he talks with leaders of the state’s power industry and government on the best way to lower prices and increase capacity without further endangering the state’s environment. Panelists include: Stefanie Brand, Director, New Jersey Division of Rate Counsel; Lee Solomon, President, New Jersey Board of Public Utilities, and Glen Thomas, President, The P3 Group.
