Energy Master Plan Committee
1987 Law Requires New Jersey to Formulate the EMP
New Jersey is statutorily (EMP statute) required to do an EMP every 10 years and to do updates every three years. The most recent Energy Master Plan was published in 1991 and updated in 1995 in response to the introduction of wholesale competitive electricity markets in the region. A 1987 amendment to the EMP law (itself enacted in '77) mandated a standing committee representing all relevant state policymaking agencies.
