In fact, the $300-400 million green infrastructure project will be the biggest investment in Salem County and goals to create approximately 1.500 jobs and $500 million in economic activity.
For the records, the construction operations are estimated to start in 2021.
The New Jersey Wind Port will create thousands of high-quality jobs, bring millions of investment dollars to our state, and establish New Jersey as the national capital of offshore wind. This is a vital step forward in achieving our goal of reaching 7,500 megawatts of offshore wind power by 2035 and 100 percent clean energy by 2050.
....said Governor Murphy.
What is more, New Jersey Wind Port aims to produce 7.500 megawatts of offshore wind energy by 2035 in order to further contribute to the region's plan of achieving 100% clean energy by 2050.
Another element of Governor Murphy’s plan to reach 100% clean energy by 2050, the New Jersey Wind Port will be a model for economic development that responsibly cultivates New Jersey’s clean energy economy.
...New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection Commissioner, Catherine R. McCabe noted.
Following the initiative's completion, the turbines selected for the offshore wind project will be more than 850 feet tall.
The New Jersey Wind Port will provide a major economic boost to Salem County located in South Jersey, as well as the state economy.
Concluding, the offshore wind projects slated for development along the East Coast over the next decade are expected to require more than $100 billion of capital investment, creating an opportunity for significant economic growth.
