Comments on Resource Adequacy to NJ Board of Public Utilities

The New Jersey Board of Public Utilities (BPU) requested public input on its 2022 Progress Report on New Jersey's Resource Adequacy Alternatives, part of its continuing investigation into achieving New Jersey's resource adequacy and clean energy objectives. We submitted comments identifying specific recommendations for the BPU regarding the implementation of the proposals sets forth in the Progress Report. Among other recommendations, we encouraged the BPU to continue exploring the possibility of indexing renewable energy credits and clean energy attributes to the emissions intensity of displaced generation, identified various challenges associated with its proposal to introduce a market for clean capacity credits, and encouraged the BPU to carefully consider the preemption risk associated with its clean capacity credits market proposal.
