Offshore wind is driving investment to the Garden State and providing reliable, affordable, domestically-sourced energy
The ongoing offshore wind farm project is poised to make New Jersey a leader in green energy. New Jersey has increased its offshore wind goal by nearly 50 percent to 11,000 megawatts (MW) by 2040. The only way to meet this goal is to move forward with developing offshore wind farms off the southern coast of New Jersey.
It’s estimated that this wind farm development project alone will bring in approximately $10 million in new investments to the state. In fact, the NJ Board of Public Utilities predict that the construction of these wind farms will add $4.7 billion to the state economy and create more than 10,000 jobs – many of which are carved out specifically for union workers.
If the misinformation campaign to stop offshore wind is successful, thousands of jobs will be lost and our local economy will suffer.
Submit a public comment to the Bureau of Ocean Energy management (BOEM) and urge them to support offshore wind during this critical time for our economy and environment.Send a Letter
