New Jersey is a national leader in offshore wind, has scheduled three public meetings for offshore wind stakeholders and members of the public to provide their input.
The New Jersey Board of Public Utilities (NJBPU) has scheduled three public meetings for offshore wind stakeholders and members of the public to provide their input in the development of an Offshore Wind Strategic Plan.


The meeting schedule is as follows:


  • Tuesday, December 4 from 1-3 p.m. at Bergen Community College (Lyndhurst, 5th floor conference center), 1280 Wall Street West, Lyndhurst
  • Wednesday, December 5 from 6-8 p.m., Mercer Community College (conference center), 1200 Old Trenton Road, West Windsor
  • Thursday December 13, from 6-8 p.m., at Atlantic County Government Building (auditorium), 1333 Atlantic Avenue, Atlantic City


“The Board has taken significant steps forward to implement Governor Murphy’s clean energy initiative, in particular our state’s robust offshore wind program,” said President Joseph L. Fiordaliso.


“We recently opened a solicitation of 1,100 megawatts of offshore wind, the largest single state solicitation in the nation’s history. With the Governor calling on the NJBPU to open solicitations of an additional 1,200 megawatts in 2020 and 2022, public input will be a crucial component in developing the Offshore Wind Strategic Plan that will help us reach the Governor’s goal of 100 percent clean energy by 2050.”


The Offshore Wind Strategic Plan will focus on integrating critical components of offshore wind development including supply chain infrastructure and workforce development, energy pricing and markets, and environmental protection. In addition to these three public meetings, the NJBPU will hold subject specific meetings on these components of the Strategic Plan early next year.
