New Jersey jumps into offshore wind

9/18/18

In the race for offshore wind leadership playing out up and down the east coast, New Jersey just made a big move—the Garden State’s Board of Public Utilities has approved the country’s largest single offshore wind solicitation. The Board is seeking 1,100 megawatts (MW) of new offshore wind capacity.
