The NJEDA will present a Town Hall style meeting for the Salem County Community to discuss the Wind Port project, all are welcome – the event is free.

The New Jersey Economic Development Authority (NJEDA) and PSEG have signed a lease allowing for a term of up to 78-years on land that will be home to the New Jersey Wind Port in Salem County, New Jersey, further positioning the state as a hub for clean energy and the U.S. offshore wind industry. The port will provide a location for essential staging, assembly, and manufacturing activities related to offshore wind along the East Coast.
The Wind Port is located adjacent to PSEG’s nuclear generating site, which today provides more than 90% of New Jersey’s carbon-free electricity, and together, offshore wind and nuclear energy will deliver powerful support for our state and national clean energy ambitions.
Wind Port Update presented by The NJ Economic Development Authority on 8/4/21.
Currently New Jersey and New York states own the most offshore wind sites. When considering locations for wind turbine marshalling (assembly) and manufacturing locations, Senate President Steve Sweeney championed the Lower Alloways Creek site as the perfect location for a number of reasons. Please see the post for full notes and links.

NJEDA Announces Reopening Of Pre-Registration For Phase 4 Of The Small Business Emergency Assistance Grant Program
Small businesses and non-profits that missed previous deadlines to apply have another chance as the NJ Economic Development Authority (NJEDA) reopened pre-registration for Phase 4 of its Small Business Emergency Assistance Grant Program on May 26, 2021.
In line with his commitment to a stronger and fairer economic recovery, Governor Phil Murphy recently announced the allocation of $200 million in additional funds to help fulfill Phase 4 grant applications. Small business owners and non-profits that have not previously applied for Phase 4 grants may pre-register as a preliminary step toward applying for grants of up to $20,000.
With COVID-19 Numbers Trending Decisively in the Right Direction, Governor Murphy Announces Additional Easing of Restrictions
With COVID-19 numbers trending decisively in the right direction and New Jersey progressing toward its adult-age vaccination goals, Governor Murphy announced an additional easing of restrictions, including a removal of all percentage capacity limits for indoor and outdoor businesses, a lifting of the prohibition on indoor bar seating, and an end to the outdoor gathering limit.

In 1943, a group of business owners got together to develop the first organization dedicated specifically to serving business in Salem City. Today, the Salem County Chamber of Commerce boasts roughly 380 members comprised of large corporations, manufacturers, small businesses and community leaders county-wide. We have a supportive, active Board of Directors, professional staff, and over 340 active members. Although much has changed in the past several decades, our mission has remained the same. We are still a group of business people dedicated to making Salem County a better place to live, work and do business.
