Energy Efficiency Bill Would Encourage Vendors to Bid on ProjectsMarch 27, 2012 – In The News
Steven S. Goldenberg, co-chair of the firm’s Energy and Public Utilities practice, recently commented on a proposed energy bill in the state of New Jersey.
The proposed bill (S-1763) aims to change the state’s current and three year old law, the Energy Savings Improvement Program (ESIP).
The bill would also eliminate a requirement that state contracts be awarded to the lowest bidder. Instead, contracts would be awarded based on best value, which would allow New Jersey to award deals based on which bids provide the greatest energy savings.
According to Goldenberg, “There are literally hundreds of millions of dollars of projects that can be done.”
