NJ Lifts Ban on At-Home Energy-Efficiency Assessments (Ind. Report)
New Jersey Board of Public Utilities
Date: 2020-05-22
In Trenton, the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities (NJ BPU) is reporting the lifting of a recently imposed, COVID-19 inspired ban on utilities and energy firms entering homes for energy audit and energy efficiency upgrades.

After the agency sought to limit access to homes, the state's utilities essentially told contractors to end energy-efficiency work to comply with the directive, virtually shutting down programs to curtail energy use. As a result of the shutdown, New Jersey lost an estimated 11,000 or more energy efficiency sector , according to Environmental Entrepreneurs, and others.

The Murphy administration has touted energy efficiency as a key component of its plans to shift the Garden State to 100 pct clean energy by 2050, but it is lagging behind mandates to require utilities to achieve significant cuts in energy use.
