Having already collected delicious, swampy methane gas in the swamps at Lyndhurst, N.J., since 1987, the New Jersey Meadowlands Commission is setting its sights on more renewable energy growth .
Yesterday the commission dropped a press release saying they'd add 5 Megawatts' worth of solar panels as soon as possible, and have set a goal of securing 20 MW worth of renewable sources by the year 2020, possibly including "solar, tidal, wind, geothermal and other sources of renewable energy."
One other obvious (but oft-overlooked) benefit:
"These initiatives also aim to attract cutting-edge technology companies and jobs to the area."
Jobs! Who couldn't use a job? So. If you want to be happier, healthier and cleaner, keep your eye on the want ads for a gig in a New Jersey swamp.
Next step for Jersey: get the Bonj, a guy who may already have a green streak, to start playing wind-powered concerts. And here's a link to give him the idea or ask him why he doesn't already do it.
