Boating and environmental groups in Ohio and Michigan are cheering the New Jersey Public Utilities Commission’s decision to reject the proposed Nautilus wind farm off the Garden State, declaring that it “fails to demonstrate a net economic benefit to the state.” Organizations in Ohio and Michigan are engaged in a battle to prevent wind turbines from being built in America’s five Great Lakes. “This basis for the rejection by New Jersey’s PUCO mirrors our position that the proposed turbine farm . . .

State rejects Atlantic City offshore-wind project for third time — too pricey

The state has once again rejected a plan to build a small pilot offshore-wind project off Atlantic City, a decision seemingly at odds with the Murphy administration’s commitment to make New Jersey a national leader in an emerging clean-energy sector. The project, located in state waters 2.8 miles off the resort city, was deemed too costly to ratepayers who would finance the 25-megawatt wind farm and unable to demonstrate it would be a net economic benefit to New Jersey and . . .

Report maps potential environmental impacts of offshore wind energy

A four-year study of planned wind energy areas off the East Coast found that building and operating offshore wind energy arrays could affect some of the region’s most commercially valuable fish species. The report by scientists with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration was written to help the federal Bureau of Offshore Energy Management to evaluate development plans for eight offshore wind energy leases issued by the agency. Those areas, extending from the largest proposals to date off southern New . . . Complete story »

Don’t fund small offshore wind project, says ratepayer consultant

Ratepayer funds should not be spent to develop a small offshore wind project first proposed for state waters off Atlantic City by Fishermen’s Energy, according to a consultant for the Ratepayer Counsel.

Dismukes, of Acadian Consulting Group in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, said in testimony presented to the state Board of Public Utilities earlier this month. The proposed 24-megawatt, three-turbine demonstration project was first proposed . . . Complete story »
