Description:

OCW intends to develop, build, operate, and own (through one or more affiliated special purpose entities) a utility-scale offshore wind farm located approximately 15 miles off the coast of New Jersey within the Lease Area (the “Project”). The Project is being developed to serve the New Jersey market pursuant to the ongoing State of New Jersey’s Offshore Wind Economic Development Act Section 4 procurement process, administered by the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities (“NJBPU”). OCW was the sole beneficiary of New Jersey’s first 1,100 MW solicitation. Additional projects may also be developed within the Lease Area in the future in support of New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy’s Executive Order Number 8, which established a goal of developing 3.5 GW of offshore wind by 2030.1 Further solicitations by the NJBPU of 1,200 MW each are expected in 2020 and 2022.
