New Jersey on Path to be First State to Align Offshore Wind Transmission Policy with Regional Plan
New Jersey set a goal of 7,500 megawatts of offshore wind energy by 2035. Now, the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities is working to make sure these goals are aligned with its regional grid operator’s planning process by signing a state agreement. This action allows the state to solicit potential offshore wind transmission solutions from qualified developers that would not normally be available during this stage of the development process. New Jersey is the first state to take advantage of this state agreement.
