U.S. Senator Bob Menendez (D-N.J.) announced $9 million in federal funding from the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) to expand and improve services at the Salem Marine Terminal, one of the oldest ports on the East Coast. The announcement comes as President Biden prepares to sign the $1.2 trillion infrastructure package that the House of Representatives passed last week.
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.
