Central Jersey Safe Energy Coalition (SAFER-NJ.org) is a citizen organization opposed to the Williams Transco’s Northeast Supply Expansion (NESE) project in general and building of Compressor Station 206 in particular. 

SAFERNJ.org was founded by residents of communities within the New Jersey Counties of Middlesex and Somerset who live in close proximity to the proposed Compressor Station 206.  SAFERNJ.org  works with local, county, state and federal officials to address the NESE project that potentially has a massive negative impact on New Jersey, but no benefit since the gas is being transported to New York.  We partner with various religious institutions, community organizations and other non-governmental agencies to address the concerns of clean water and air, health, safety, the increased use of fossil fuels and the overall protection of our environment.  Our members include business professionals, engineers and scientists, but most importantly men and women concerned about their communities and parents concerned about their children.

 

FERC submits Resource Report on NESE

As most of you already know, FERC recently has submitted 2,497 pages resource report on NESE project on the docket. Most of the work related the CC 206 has been marked as to be completed by 1st quarter of 2017.  However we will study the report in detail and formulate a response in coming days.
 

ReThink Energy NJ Annual Survey 

In a press conference last week at the State Capital, ReThink Energy NJ and Fairleigh Dickinson presented the 2016 survey that they conducted of NJ residents' attitudes towards Clean Energy.
This study,  clearly indicates that a majority of NJ residents support a major shift to renewable energy.

The press conference was attended by Senator Bateman, representatives from SAFERNJ.org  and other government officials and members of the press.

As an example of what can be done, the California state government has mandated that utilities within their state get 50% of their power from renewable sources (including solar and wind-generated energy) by 2030. Governor Cuomo of New York has issued a similar mandate to his agencies.
