The wind is blowing in a new direction in New Jersey, a sign the state is getting serious about developing a robust offshore-wind industry.
The Murphy administration has established the nation’s most aggressive targets for promoting offshore wind. More importantly, it has backed those goals with a series of significant steps to deliver on the commitment.
What’s happening with offshore wind in New Jersey, why is it so critical to the state’s efforts to combat climate change? And what could it mean for customers?
In the final of a five-part series of roundtables on New Jersey’s Energy Future, NJ Spotlight gathered experts on Friday, November 9 to discuss the Murphy administration’s aggressive goals for offshore wind and how they might be achieved — critical issues in the state’s efforts to combat climate change and deliver clean energy to customers.
