What do the Board of Public Utilities and the NewJ Dept of Community Affairs have in common? A joint weatherization assistance program and a mission towards reducing climate change. According to the U.S. office of Energy Efficiency & Renewable Energy, these programs reduce energy costs of low-income households by increasing the energy efficiency of their homes.
While saving the planet may be a lot to ask for from a weatherization program, BPU President Joe Fiordaliso believes that “we have, as a society, a moral obligation to ensure the fact that we do everything humanly possible to mitigate the effects of climate change.”
