NJEDA to Host Informative ‘Open Houses’ on Offshore Wind

The New Jersey Economic Development Authority (NJEDA), along with the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection, New Jersey Board of Public Utilities, and the New Jersey Department of Labor & Workforce Development, will be hosting a series of open house events designed to educate and engage the public about the state’s offshore wind initiatives. Throughout June, the NJEDA will host three meet and greet events in North, Central, and South Jersey to inform residents on the key aspects of offshore wind energy and its importance to New Jersey’s clean energy future.

These informative sessions will give the public and key stakeholders access to factual information that matter most to the community, such as workforce development programs, environmental monitoring, and details on port infrastructure, transmission projects, and lease areas, offering insights into the projects being developed and the benefits they bring to the state. Attendees will have the opportunity to meet with representatives from state agencies and offshore wind developers, ask questions, and gain a comprehensive understanding of what is happening with offshore wind in New Jersey.

Attending developers will include Leading Light Wind, Attentive Energy 2, Atlantic Shores, and Jersey Central Power & Light.

“These open houses are a tremendous opportunity for New Jersey residents to learn about the exciting advancements in offshore wind energy and how they will contribute to our state’s sustainable future,” said Tim Sullivan, CEO of NJEDA. “Under Gov. Phil Murphy’s leadership, New Jersey is leading the way in offshore wind development, and we are committed to ensuring everyone has access to the information they need to be part of this transformative journey to a clean energy future.”
