Senate President Scutari, Speaker Coughlin Issue Statement Regarding Offshore Wind Developments 

 

 (TRENTON) – Senate President Nicholas Scutari and Assembly Speaker Craig Coughlin issued the following statement upon reports that four bids were received by the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities in response to its third solicitation for the development of offshore wind projects off the coast of New Jersey:

 

“The legislature has concerns about the BPU’s approach on the offshore wind projects. There are still many unanswered questions about the economic impact these projects will have on ratepayers as well as potential impacts to one of our state’s largest economic drivers, tourism at the shore. The BPU should be able to share these impacts with the communities affected and the legislature before moving forward with these new offshore projects.”
