Via ReThink Energy: Offshore Wind: A Win for New Jersey
On Wednesday, August 16, Jersey Renews held the first in a series of events promoting policies that will push New Jersey towards a just transition to more clean, renewable energy. This event tackled offshore wind power with an expert panel and community press conference and was held at Atlantic City Utilities Authority (ACUA). The panel of experts, speaking from the control room of the ACUA, discussed job opportunities, energy output, and environmental concerns related to the construction and maintenance of offshore wind turbines. The press event, held under the shadow of an impressive turbine a few hundred yards away, was replete with community advocates who argued passionately for the state to move forward with offshore wind power and renewable energy that will save our communities.
