Taj Sale
There’s a sale at the Taj today (it started at 10 am, but it’s a 60-day liquidation). The new owners are selling everything from the white elephants to the chandeliers and card tables. Read all the details via The Press of Atlantic City.

Remember Energenic, AKA the former Revel casino’s very own energy center? It’s still there in the Inlet and the legal wrangling over its ownership is over, but not a whole lot seems to be happening with it while Revel/Ten’s future is still up in the air. South Jersey Industries is still a small investor. We don’t have any news on it (sorry), but reading this story by NJ Spotlight about a microgrid in Trenton reminded us that Atlantic City is

home to a massively under-utilized and nearly-brand-new energy asset. The state’s Board of Public Utilities says it wants towns to study microgrids as a way to increase resiliency. Under the BPU’s program, Trenton got a chunk of change to upgrade its small power center. Atlantic City also got some money – $175,000 – as part of the study. AC will use the money to upgrade its Midtown Thermal Control Center, which powers the hospital, Boardwalk Hall and Caesar’s and Bally’s casinos. Galloway Township also received $175,000 for a feasibility study for a ‘town center’ microgrid that would connect the hospital, Stockton, Galloway’s schools and ShopRite. More details here.

In the rest of the day’s news, of course Christie still used his veto powers in the budget, there were an estimated 100,000 people on Atlantic City’s beaches on Sunday, Atlantic County’s Veterans Museum is now openlifeguard races start Friday, a former EHT football star is facing life in prison, Brigantine wins best Atlantic County beach for the third year in a row (hmmmm), and have you met Chuck – the unofficial mayor of Ventnor’s Dorset Ave beach? All that and more below:
