New Jersey Natural Gas, Sustainable Jersey, Environmental Defense Fund Partner for Energy Project

Mar 08, 2017

New Jersey Natural Gas has joined with Sustainable Jersey and the Environmental Defense Fund to provide free technical assistance to municipalities and school districts to implement sustainable energy projects. NJNG will sponsor three EDF fellows – typically those with an MBA or similar degree – who will be paired by Sustainable Jersey with selected towns and schools for a 10-week period this summer.

“Sustainable Jersey will also provide guidance to the fellows and help them advise participating schools and municipalities about resources specific to New Jersey, as well as initiatives that earn points toward certification,” a NJNG press release notes.

To be eligible, applicants must be located within NJNG’s service territory and registered with the Sustainable Jersey or Sustainable Jersey for Schools programs. Sustainable Jersey is a nonprofit organization that provides tools, training and financial incentives to support communities as they pursue sustainability programs.

Locally, Little Egg Harbor, Long Beach and Ocean townships are certified by Sustainable Jersey.

Applications are due by midnight April 14, and should be emailed to grants@sustainablejersey.com. Three to eight school districts or municipalities will be selected from the eligible submissions.
