Clean Energy Group submitted comments opposing the development of 84 megawatts of gas combustion turbines proposed by Passaic Valley Sewerage Commission (PVSC) for its main wastewater treatment facility in Newark, New Jersey. In the comments, CEG strongly recommends that the that the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection deny the proposed gas turbines, which would unnecessarily impact an environmental justice community already overburden by fossil emissions. Instead, PVSC should be directed to reexamine the feasibility of clean alternative options, specifically battery storage and solar.
