Board of Public Utilities to Decide On N.J. Nuclear Power Plant

The Board of Public Utilities will decide Tuesday if it will continue to award hundreds of millions in subsidies to PSE&G, the operator of New Jersey’s three nuclear power plants, according to NJ.com. 

The question before the board is whether or not the power company needs the money as nuclear plants become increasingly less profitable.

While critics say the company should take the financial hit itself, PSE&G insists the plants present a situation so dire it will be forced to shut them down without assistance. A shutdown would put New Jersey farther from its carbon-neutral energy goals, continued NJ.com. 

Even if you’re not a PSE&G customer, the money will be coming out of your pocket, continued NJ.com. 

Because electric usage is likely up now as many people work and spend more time at home, this decision will affect everyone.
