Con Edison Transmission, Inc. is proposing to build Clean Link New Jersey, an offshore transmission network to deliver wind power from multiple generators at sea with minimal impact to local communities, marine life and views along the Garden State’s famous shoreline.

Clean Link New Jersey would help the state meet its ambitious clean energy goals and create union jobs, while boosting the rapidly emerging Mid-Atlantic offshore wind market.

Clean Link New Jersey plans to connect 2.4 gigawatts of future offshore wind capacity to the grid’s high-voltage onshore backbone. The project would install multiple subsea transmission cables through a defined “power corridor,” to minimize the environmental impact. The offshore mesh-style network is flexible and modular, to allow various offshore wind projects to plug in as they become ready to generate.

“Clean Link New Jersey will advance the Garden State’s clean energy future, providing reliable energy delivery of offshore wind generation,” said Stuart Nachmias, president and CEO of Con Edison Transmission. “As a successful independent transmission developer, we understand that the transition to a clean energy future needs to be balanced with the needs of local communities. Our proposed project will provide good-paying jobs and economic opportunity, preserve the beauty of the Jersey shoreline, and minimize disruption to New Jerseyans while helping achieve the State’s clean energy goals.”
