New Jersey To Require All-Electric Car Sales By 2035
To fight climate change, New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy recently announced a new gas vehicle sales ban for the state starting in 2035. The year 2050 had been previously targeted for New Jersey to run on 100% clean energy, but that timeline was recently moved up by 15 years.
California, New York, Washington, Oregon, and other states have also proposed the same plan. As part of the goal, 100% of the electricity for EVs must come from clean energy sources. New Jersey gets about half of its electricity from burning natural gas, so it will need to work with utility companies on a plan to reduce its reliance on fossil fuels.
“These are the next big steps forward. By the year 2035, the new cars sold in New Jersey will all, and I emphasize all, be zero-emission vehicles,” stated Governor Murphy. As of now, New Jersey residents can receive up to $7,500 when they buy or lease an eligible new electric vehicle.
