Abstract:

Consumption of electricity and natural gas is projected to rise significantly in New Jersey in coming years, costing consumers money and resulting in increased pollution. On the Road to Energy Independence explains how energy efficiency measures such as improved building codes, additional appliance efficiency standards and expanded energy efficiency programs could reduce energy consumption in New Jersey at a net financial gain to consumers.
