On Jan. 19, the PennEast natural gas pipeline received federal approval and moved our region toward a clean-energy future. Families and businesses across New Jersey and Pennsylvania are closer than ever to realizing the benefits of lower and more stable electric and natural gas costs— along with thousands of new jobs— with the delivery of clean, reliable, American energy.
