Nuclear is responsible for about 40% of the electricity made in New Jersey.
Without nuclear, N.J. would use more electricity than it generates - sending jobs and dollars out of state.
Putting our eggs in one basket
If New Jersey allows nuclear energy to fade away, the state will rely almost exclusively on fossil fuels as its sole source of energy. That’s risky and expensive.
By relying on one fuel for electricity, New Jersey risks:
Fluctuating energy bills if supplies are disrupted.
Being dependent on only one fuel source could
increase power disruptions.
