On January 27, 2021, the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities approved a modified version of the transportation electrification elements of Public Service Electric and Gas Company’s Clean Energy Future Program. The approval authorizes investment worth $166 million, roughly half of the amount initially proposed. The decision delayed investment in medium- and heavy-duty electrification and did not approve any funding for that element of the original proposal at this time. Because of this, the underserved community prioritization associated with that element was left out of the approval. The program could support 43,500 Level 2 and 1,200 DC fast charging ports in the state and includes new EV charging rates.
