New Jersey is on the precipice of an energy revolution.
New Jersey has some of the most aggressive offshore wind goals in the nation – with a pledge to reach 11,000MW by 2040. In November 2020, building on that commitment, the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities (NJBPU) announced the creation of a first in the nation transmission only solicitation, to be developed through the State Agreement Approach in partnership with regional grid operator PJM. This coordinated approach to planned transmission will help create more cost-effective, efficient transmission solutions that minimize the environmental impacts of bringing wind energy ashore.
Now, PJM has officially opened the solicitation window for the submission of transmission projects to deliver offshore wind to New Jersey. At Anbaric, we developed Boardwalk Power Link, an integral part of New Jersey’s growing offshore wind industry.
