BPU to hold hearing into generating capacity, LCAPP

TRENTON – The Board of Public Utilities said today it will hold another hearing into the reliability of the state’s electric supply and whether there is a need to pursue additional generating capacity beyond the 2,000 megawatts contracted for under the Long-Term Capacity Agreement Pilot Program, commonly known as LCAPP.

The BPU held a hearing in June and had planned to originally issue a recommendation by Sept. 9.

But BPU Commissioner Lee Solomon said in a release that there are issues to be further investigated, including identification of impediments to the development of new generation capacity in New Jersey.

The next hearing will be Oct. 14.
