In September 2021, Con Edison Transmission submitted their bid for their Clean Link New Jersey Project into the PJM and the NJ Board of Public Utilities' 2021 State Agreement Approach Proposal Window to Support NJ Offshore Wind. Clean Link New Jersey would build necessary transmission to support NJ's goal of facilitating the delivery of a total of 7,500 MW of offshore wind by 2035.
Clean Link New Jersey provides a unique combination of benefits and advantages for the state of NJ while offering flexibility and modularity to facilitate reliable, cost-effective delivery of offshore wind energy to New Jersey consumers using state of the art technology. The Clean Link New Jersey solution embraces the power corridor concept to provide a cost-effective opportunity to install multiple power import links at the same time. It maximizes capacity transfer and minimizes disruption to the shore communities hosting the infrastructure. Clean Link New Jersey is also designed with a cost-effective mesh network of offshore platforms to create a level of reliability that has not yet been achieved for U.S. offshore wind.
