NEW JERSEY ENERGY LINK
The New Jersey Energy Link is an offshore electrical transmission cable that will serve wind farms to be built at least 10 miles off the coast of New Jersey. The New Jersey Energy Link will also make New Jersey’s electric transmission grid more efficient and reliable, and create new clean energy jobs for residents.

Buried under the ocean floor and running the length of the coastline, the New Jersey Energy Link will bring power to shore at three locations serving southern, central and northern New Jersey. When complete, it will be capable of carrying 3,000 megawatts of offshore wind and conventional electricity generated in New Jersey – enough to power more than 1 million homes.

The New Jersey Energy Link was selected as the first phase of the Atlantic Wind Connection multi-year offshore wind transmission project. The selection was based on New Jersey’s commitment to developing an offshore wind industry and the large potential for clean renewable power that exists off its shoreline.

New Jersey has committed to develop at least 1,100 megawatts of wind turbines off the Jersey coast, in an area that can eventually support up to 3,000 megawatts. This clean, renewable energy will help the State meet its renewable energy requirements and add a much-needed source of new power to meet New Jersey’s growing demand.
