Offshore Wind 

New Jersey is located in the heart of the East Coast wind belt, and geographically positioned to be a hub for the U.S. offshore wind industry.

Under Governor Murphy’s leadership, New Jersey has established an ambitious goal of generating 7.5 GW of electricity from offshore wind energy by 2035 as part of the State’s Energy Master Plan to transition to 100 percent clean energy by 2050. This means 30 percent of offshore wind energy produced on the East Coast will be from New Jersey. NJEDA is investing resources to ensure that the arrival of offshore wind creates jobs and opportunities for New Jerseysans in addition to generating clean, sustainable energy. 

Whether you are a large offshore wind developer, an established manufacturer or supplier looking to relocate, or a small business interested in joining the offshore wind supply chain, New Jersey is the place for your business to get started, get established, and grow.  See below for more information on New Jersey's Offshore Wind Sector, and the programs and resources NJEDA has for developing the offshore wind economy.

New Jersey Wind Port

The New Jersey Wind Port is a 200+ acre development project that will position southern New Jersey as a major hub for the U.S. offshore wind industry. The port will offer an unrivaled combination of purpose-built space, open access to the Atlantic Ocean, short steaming distances to Mid-Atlantic offshore wind leases areas, and a robust high-skilled labor force in New Jersey. Up to 1,500 jobs and $500 million in direct economic activity will be created through the development of this port.
