Governor Phil Murphy (New Jesey) has announced the offshore wind solicitation schedule to meet the 7,500MW offshore wind goal by 2035 and called upon the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities to take all necessary actions to implement the schedule.
 
These projects will deliver the renewable energy generation needed to meet the State’s goals of 50 percent renewable energy by 2030 and a 100 percent clean energy economy by 2050.
 
The proposed schedule calls for the next 1,200 MW solicitation to be opened by September 2020, with an award made by second quarter of 2021. The complete proposed OSW Solicitation Schedule through 2035 is as follows:
