    But so did Massachusetts New Jersey Colorado and Delaware all thanks to smart policies The top 10 solar states with only 26 of the nation s population were responsible for 87 of the nation s solar power Our report found all or nearly all of the states shared a set of smart policies in common from strong clean energy standards to policies that let solar homeowners sell their extra power back to the utilities 20 percent solar by 2025 We need more and better pro solar policies not fewer That s why we re urging Gov Chris Christie to make commitments that will help put New Jersey on the road to 100 clean energy with 20 percent solar by 2025 Achieving this state goal would help move our country closer to the national goal of getting 10 percent solar by 2030 This would produce immediate and long lasting benefits for our environment including removing 280 million metric tons of carbon from the atmosphere by 2030 the equivalent of taking 59 million cars off the road Let s go big on solar We think a combination of professional research and advocacy with community action can help New Jersey go big on solar Why Our national federation has done it before Environment California spearheaded the campaign for that state s Million Solar Roofs Initiative In Massachusetts we helped convince the state to set a goal of enough solar to power 50 000 homes and then persuaded the state to raise the goal when it hit the original milestone ahead of schedule We ve also won pro solar policies in Colorado New Mexico Minnesota Arizona New Jersey and North Carolina But we have a long way to go to reach solar power s true potential It s time to go big on solar If we take the right steps today we can harness more power from the sun so we can finally leave dirty energy behind The sky really is the limit Issue updates News Release Environment New Jersey NJ Assembly Votes to Override Gov Christie on RGGI Rules The New Jersey Assembly voted to override the Christie Administration on global warming 46 32 on a virtual party line vote moving one step closer to stopping Gov Christie s attempts to remove New Jersey from the rules governing the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative RGGI a popular program designed to clean up pollution from fossil fuel power plants The State Assembly will get another opportunity to reaffirm the vote in the new legislative session after a 30 day period where DEP can review the regulatory proposal The legislation ACR189 includes co prime sponsors Asm John McKeon D 27 and Asm Joe Lagana D 38 Keep Reading News Release Environment New Jersey Research and Policy Center As Paris Climate Talks Kick Off New Solar Report Shows Newark As Top City Per Capita for Solar in Northeast New Jersey s cities rank among national leaders on installed solar capacity according to an Environment New Jersey Research
