We need your help to stop Governor Christie and the
Legislature from pushing through a bill that gives PSEG unneeded subsidies for
their nuclear plants with money from our pockets! We are urging everyone to
contact their legislators and tell them to vote NO to this Nuclear Bail Out
bill, S3560 (Sweeney/Smith).
Under this bill, PSEG could start receiving subsidies within a year, despite
being profitable enough to have bid into auction. In a reverse-Robin Hood move,
they want to take billions of NJ ratepayer money and give it to PSEG to
subsidize nuclear power plants that are already making money. Estimates put the
subsidies at $320 million a year, which would cost each NJ household almost $41
a year. What’s worse is that they’re
rushing it through in lame duck without proper scrutiny and oversight.
Click below to write to your legislators and tell them to
vote NO on this nuclear subsidy robbery. The bill would tie Governor-Elect Murphy’s hands when it comes to
promoting renewable energy. With cheap natural gas and subsidized nuclear
power, renewable energy such as wind and solar power will be pushed out. The
Trump Administration is already promoting three different types of nuclear
subsidies while trying to undermine renewable energy. We can’t let that happen in New Jersey and that’s why we need to stop
this nuclear subsidy bill!
We are asking everyone to contact their legislators to
tell them to vote against this dangerous bill should it make it to the Senate or
Assembly floor. We cannot let
Governor Christie use nuclear subsidies to block renewable energy in New
Thank for all you do!

Vote NO on the Nuclear Subsidy Bill S3560 (Sweeney/Smith)!
Dear [Decision Maker],
I am writing to express my concern with the nuclear subsidies bill, S3560 (Sweeney/Smith), and requesting that you vote against this bill and in the interests of the people of New Jersey. I believe that Governor Christie has no right to push his agenda through during lame duck. Governor-Elect Murphy has strong goals for renewable energy and this bill would block if not prevent those goals from going forward. The ratepayers of New Jersey should not have to pay for PSEG's subsidies, especially when they don't need it.
