The Administration's Energy Master Plan has a noble goal - to eliminate the state's overall carbon emissions by 2050. But it also has a dirty little secret - nobody will be able to afford it. Trenton's been silent about the costs, going so far as to ignore Open Public Records Act (OPRA) requests. But we've done the math and the cost to residents and businesses is astronomical.

Ambassador Tip
"Personally and professionally, we are all part of group emails, texts, and chats and sometimes our replies are just intended for the primary sender. Please take the extra few moments to reply back to just that person and read your response just one more time before you hit send. The other recipients may not want multiple replies inundating their inbox and replies that are just meant for the sender can go out to "all" and could cause problems down the road. Even worse, they could be re-posted, re-tweeted on social media without any context or rebuttal. Once something is out there, it is out there! So next "reply"; think, respond, review and send it only to those who you want to read it."
