Welcome to Jersey WaterCheck’s evaluation center — the Benchmark Hub.

The Benchmark Hub helps utility managers and state leaders dive into the factors that contribute to the need for water infrastructure investment. Here you will find the details, measures, reports, results, and data that we’ve gathered for every water and wastewater system in the state.

Percentage of energy used generated by renewable sources (state-level)

This metric is outside of government requirements.

At the state level, this metric shows the average percentage of energy obtained from renewable energy sources for utilities by utility size. Renewable energy is defined here as energy from a source that is not depleted when used, such as wind or solar power (onsite or offsite) or biogas from utility operations. This metric helps convey a utility's commitment to sustainability and environmental protection. In some cases, renewable energy may have other advantages, including providing power during power outages and lowering costs. New Jersey’s Clean Energy Plan encourages use of renewable energy and reduction of energy demands.
