Solar industry veteran and PV Tech blogger Edgar A. Gunther was told by the New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy’s office that clean energy legislation proposed for the state is “on his desk” but appears to be no closer to receiving approval.

Gunther, a photovoltaic enthusiast who researches and pens the GUNTHER Portfolio under the Photovoltaic Blogger moniker, has written a blog for our publisher Solar Media’s international solar PV technology site, published today.

In it, Gunther reports that a trio of clean energy bills passed last month by the New Jersey Legislature, which includes A3723, a bill which establishes an energy storage goal of 600MW by 2021 and 2GW by 2030 and increases the New Jersey RPS to 35% by 2025 and 50% by 2030, appears to have stalled for reasons currently best known to the Governor alone.

Gunther writes:

Thus far, New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy has not signed any of the above legislation. I contacted the State of New Jersey, Office of the Governor, and asked about the clean energy legislation status and if the Governor had any concerns about them. On the phone, the spokesperson said: “They are on his desk, and we don't know when or why.”
