Eight states agreed to put a lot more energy promoting the sales of electric and other zero-emission vehicles but not New Jersey.

In an agreement announced week by governors of those states, all but two of them in the Northeast, to take steps to help in cleaner-running vehicles with the of putting 3.3 million zero-emission on the roads within a dozen

Zero-emission vehicles would greenhouse gas emissions, improve air and public health, and promote growth by jump-starting a fledgling industry, according to its proponents.

So not to like? All of those goals are by New Jersey — in its energy plan, in a law requiring the state to emissions contributing to global and in another law designed to promote running vehicles.

Yet the Christie is not participating in the initiative.

Asked a state Department of Environmental spokesman said the new effort an 11-state compact, in which New is a participant, addressing transportation dealing with climate

“We’re satisfied with effort,’’ said the DEP’s Ragonese, adding that New supports the eight-state initiative’s

“We are committed to advancing environmental he said. “We are committed to these

Ragonese acknowledged that the rollout of cleaner vehicles has not as quickly at it hoped.

One reason is efforts to encourage installation of car stations at malls, highway stops and elsewhere have received final legislative partly due to lack of support by the of Republican lawmakers.

New Jersey’s to participate in the eight-state program clean-energy advocates and others who been critical of New Jersey’s to encourage motorists to switch to vehicles – which can only be by on a large scale by building the including plug-in electric-vehicle across the state.

“I’m disappointed,’’ said Feinberg, president of the New Jersey Cities Coalition, who still the coalition can convince the state to the eight-state effort. “It could been a step for New Jersey to some leadership—both from an and economic reasons.’’

Jeff director of the New Jersey Sierra agreed.

“How does the meet the goals set in the clean-car law a couple of years ago?’’ asked.

Under the law, New has to meet the same standards as and other states for promoting the use of cars and for reducing greenhouse gas he said.

New Jersey does more than 100 plug-in charging stations, Ragonese According to the federal Department of the state has 120 charging stations, a of that includes both locations and private facilities – for charging stations at workplaces are available only to employees).

The state also has 30 compressed refueling stations, according to There are no hydrogen- fueling another goal of the eight-state

according to the DOE database, there are 120 EV charging stations in NJ. This public locations and private example, stations at a workplace is only available to employees).

the agreement, the states agreed to building codes to make it to construct new electric-vehicle charging to purchase more zero-emission for public fleets; to look at incentives to promote the vehicles, and to setting favorable electricity for cars using at-home stations.

There are already more 6,700 charging stations to the public in the signatory states California, Connecticut, Maryland, New York, Oregon, Rhode and Vermont.

While expressing with New Jersey’s decision to not the new initiative, Feinberg said the could still benefit the program.

His optimism stems the fact that the eight states represent 23 percent of the car market, a large enough to help lower the costs of vehicles through economies of and to expand the range of product available to consumers.

New Jersey, other states which to promote cleaner-running vehicles a previous initiative, requires to sell a certain amount of emission vehicles each a mandate that car manufacturers are to achieve.
