NJ Gov. Chris Christie said he wants to see more investments in renewable energy come from the private sector.
"We worked with the private sector to make solar affordable and available to businesses and individuals in our state," he said during Wednesday's Republican debate.
"That's the way we deal with global warming — not through government intervention, not through government taxes, and for God's sake, don't send Washington another dime until they stop wasting the money they are already sending now."
New Jersey is among the top 10 states in the country with the most solar energy. Christie said he was also interested in other energy sources, like oil, natural gas and wind.
