RE: League Educational Foundation Presents Solar Energy Policy Study
On behalf of the New Jersey League of Municipalities’ Educational Foundation, I am pleased to present “Crosscurrents and Convergence: Politics, Economics and the Future of New Jersey Renewable Energy Policy.”
This is the fifteenth paper in NJLM Foundation’s “Friends of Local Government” Policy Paper series. This paper is authored by Tom Johnson, co-founder and energy and environment writer for NJ Spotlight
Mr. Johnson is a journalist with 34 years of experience in reporting and editing at New Jersey newspapers. A veteran reporter for The Newark Star-Ledger, Johnson worked in the Statehouse and in Newark covering energy, environmental and telecommunications issues. Before that he served as editor of the Ridgewood Newspapers and a reporter and editor at the Herald-News. A recipient of many state and national journalism honors, including recognition by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for coverage of the environment, he was a member of the Star-Ledger’s nationally award-winning business section. After leaving the Ledger in early 2009, he served as press secretary to the Daggett Campaign for Governor.
This paper and the entire “Friends of Local Government” Policy Paper series is available on the Foundation’s website at http://www.njlmef.org/policy-papers/FoLG_V4_3.pdf
On behalf of the Board of the NJLM Educational Foundation, we thank Mr. Johnson for his contributions, and believe you will find this paper informative.
We would also like to note the support of the Foundation’s Board for this project, as well as staff from the New Jersey State League of Municipalities.
Very truly yours,
William G. Dressel, Jr.
