The New Jersey Economic Development Authority (NJEDA) said Wednesday it extended the deadline to submit responses to its request for information (RFI) seeking input on the need for a “Green Fund” to support investments in clean energy technology.
Responses will now be accepted through May 29, 2020.
“Increasing private investment in the deployment of clean energy is vital to achieving Governor Murphy’s goal of setting New Jersey on a path to 100 percent clean energy by 2050,” said NJEDA Chief Executive Officer Tim Sullivan. “We want to be sure that anyone who wants to provide insight in response to this RFI is not hindered in doing so due to the COVID-19 outbreak.”
The RFI, released on March 10, seeks input from all individuals and organizations that have an interest in how a Green Fund may be established and operate in the state. Its questions focus on standing up the proposed Green Fund as well as how to best manage it over the long term to ensure the greatest benefit for New Jersey.
All RFI responses must be submitted in writing via email to RFI-PotentialGreenFund@njeda.com no later than 11:59 p.m. EST on May 29. The subject line should state: “RFI Response-2020-RFI-OET-CE- 102-Potential Green Fund.”
