NJ Wind Power

njwind

You want clean energy NJ?  Here it comes.  So now the question is are you really ready for clean power in NJ or are you feeling a NIMBY attitude coming on?  People in Atlantic City, Margate, Ventnor, Longport and Brigantine may initially be worried about seeing wind turbines from their homes.

Hopefully building the wind turbines 15 miles out to sea is a good enough distance.  That far out officials believe you won’t see it most of the time from the shore because of the ocean haze.  The other reason for the distance is that there are also far fewer birds who could be hurt or hurt the equipment.

So the state’s first award for offshore wind to the Danish energy company Ørsted and Public Service Enterprise Group (PSEG) for a proposed 1,100-megawatt Ocean Wind project was granted by the NJ Board of Public Utilities.  This is all part of a push by Governor Murphy to raise the proportion of energy in NJ derived from cleaner sources.

So the plans for this $1.6 billion wind-energy farm is the largest of its kind in the U.S.  Let’s do this!
