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.
