New Jersey wants to go 100% renewable energy by 2050 — is it possible?

Premiered: June 13, 2019 | 0:05:50

With the state already starting to weather the effects of climate change — more intense storms, higher temperatures and rising seas — Gov. Phil Murphy’s landmark clean energy bill is set on having 100% of the state’s power to come from clean renewables like wind and solar by the year 2050.

Our partners at NJTV outline the state’s ambitious energy goals and ask what’s feasible.
