The Town of Princeton has admirably drawn up a number of steps to reduce the cost and the emissions, or pollution, stemming from power generation and usage, along with that from vehicles. These initiatives are joined together in the Princeton Climate Action Plan.
Part of that plan was to provide residents with options to reduce the cost and pollution from generating, or supplying, electric power. Reducing pollution essentially means turning away from using fossil fuels as power sources.
Recently, Mayor Liz Lempert sent out a letter to residents announcing that residents can opt out of the new contract the town has negotiated with a supply company, Constellation New Energy (CNE), for its electric supply (not delivery, which PSE&G will continue to provide.)
