TRENTON, N.J. – Gov. Phil Murphy’s latest plan to save the planet involves replacing gas heating systems with electric boilers and could cost as much as $2 million per building. The mandate, which is set to be approved Dec. 6 and take effect Jan. 1, 2025, impacts about 8,500 public and private buildings, including apartment complexes, K-12 public schools, grocery stores, and other facilities.
