U.S. ELECTRIC POWER INDUSTRY NET GENERATION 2011 SOURCE: EIA, MONTHLY ENERGY REVIEW, MARCH 2012, TABLE 7.2A ELECTRICITY NET GENERATION.
U.S. ENERGY CONSUMPTION BY SOURCE 2011 SOURCE: EIA, MONTHLY ENERGY REVIEW, MARCH 2012, TABLE 1.3 PRIMARY ENERGY CONSUMPTION BY SOURCE (QUADRILLION BTU), 7
New Jersey’s 2011 Energy Master Plan (EMP) Statue states that the EMP shall: Include long–term objectives with interim implementation measures Gives consideration to energy needs and supplies across the State Involves consultation with federal or state agencies involved in production, use, consumption or conservation of energy New Jersey Board of Public Utilities’ Role Revise the 2008 Energy Master Plan Coordinate Input with other state agencies Facilitate the public comment process Final EMP implementation
2011 EMP’s 5 Major Goals 1. Drive down Cost of Energy for all Customers 2. Promote a diverse portfolio of new, clean in-State generation 3. Reward energy efficiency and energy conservation and reduce peak demand 4. Capitalize on emerging technologies for transportation and power production 5. Maintain support for the renewable energy portfolio standard of 22.5% of energy from renewable sources by 2021.
New Jersey’s Energy Mix 2010 Existing Capacity in New Jersey by Fuel Type (MW and %) New Jersey generating capacity totals 17,227 MW, about 84% of New Jersey’s peak load of 20,548 MW in New Jersey Energy Generation by Fuel Type (MWh and %) Source: EIA

New Jersey Electric Imports ( ) PJM Interconnection is a regional transmission organization (RTO) that coordinates the movement of wholesale electricity in all or parts of 13 states and the District of Columbia. PJM’s role as a federally regulated RTO means that it acts independently and impartially in managing the regional transmission system and the wholesale electricity market. PJM ensures the reliability of the largest centrally dispatched grid in North America. The degree to which New Jersey has relied on imports has varied over time. While about 25% of State-wide use was via imports in 2009, one decade earlier total imports were about one-half of the State’s needs.

Infrastructure Expansion Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) - is an independent agency that regulates the interstate transmission of electricity, natural gas, and oil.
Nuclear Plants in New Jersey Nuclear Regulatory Commission’s (NRC) regulatory activities are focused on reactor safety oversight and reactor license renewal of existing plants, materials safety oversight and materials licensing for a variety of purposes, and waste management of both high-level waste and low-level waste. In addition, the NRC is preparing to evaluate new applications for nuclear plants.
Long-Term Capacity Agreement Pilot Program (LCAPP) LCAPP was designed to promote the development of 2,000 MW of new baseload and/or mid-merit generation facilities for the benefit of New Jersey’s electric consumers.

Improve Environmental Impacts
New Jersey’s Clean Energy Program New Jersey's Clean Energy Program™ promotes increased energy efficiency and the use of clean, renewable sources of energy including solar, wind, geothermal, and sustainable biomass. NJCEP offers financial incentives, programs, and services for residential, commercial, and municipal customers.
Renewable Energy Success
Solar Renewable Energy Credits - SRECs Capital cost of system – large initial investment Cash Outflow Cash Inflow Federal Investment Tax Credit SRECs inbound cash flow based on the actual production of energy from the system Energy - savings O & M – Minimal maintenance Year Solar Alternative Compliance Payment (SACP)
