Washington, D.C.—Today the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities (BPU) unanimously voted to extend Public Service Enterprise Group's (PSEG) Zero Emission Certificates for an additional three years. The following statement can be attributed to Maria Korsnick, president and chief executive officer of the Nuclear Energy Institute:

“NEI applauds the New Jersey BPU’s unanimous decision to award zero-emissions credits to the three nuclear reactors at Salem-Hope Creek. New Jersey’s commitment to preserving the state’s largest source of carbon-free energy signals their strong leadership in addressing our climate challenges and meeting the aggressive goals proposed by the Biden administration. The actions taken by the state help secure the future of our nuclear power plants, while providing affordable, carbon-free electricity, preserving thousands of high-quality jobs, and contributing billions of dollars to the communities they serve.”
