The purpose of these projects is to develop offshore wind energy generation facilities within the Lease Area to provide clean, renewable energy to the Northeastern U.S. by the mid-to-late 2020s. The projects will help both the U.S. and New Jersey achieve their renewable energy goals, diversify the State’s electricity supply, increase electricity reliability, and reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. The projects will also provide numerous environmental, health, community, and economic benefits, such as the creation of substantial new employment opportunities, including within disadvantaged communities.
