What will New Jersey look like if Murphy gets his way? We’ll show you.

TRENTON, N.J. – Gov. Phil Murphy’s aggressive green energy goals are fueling concerns over costs, consumer choice and reliability. Assembly Republicans reveal what it would be like to live in a New Jersey shaped by the governor’s energy policies in their new YouTube video, “Murphy’s Law.”

WATCH: Murphy’s Law
Murphy announced on July 17 an administrative rule change that would ban the sale of new gas-powered cars and mandate electric vehicle sales in New Jersey by 2035. On July 26, the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities approved controversial measures pushing building owners to convert from natural gas to electric heat.

Experts warn that the state’s power grid isn’t stable enough to handle all of the new electric cars and home appliances. Murphy’s energy master plan predicts that his policies will double or triple demand.

The future for New Jersey residents not only looks dim, but also expensive. One independent nonprofit estimated the governor’s lofty energy ambitions will cost New Jerseyans $1.4 trillion.
