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.
