NJ’s First Off-Shore Wind Project Gets Final Regulatory Approval

While developers and investors were celebrating the boost to the solar energy business when Governor Christie signed S-1925 into law on July 24, 2012, increasing the state’s solar requirements, the off-shore wind sector received a boost when the US Army Corps of Engineers approved the Individual Permit under the Clean Water Act for Fishermen’s Atlantic City Windfarm. This is the final permit needed in order for Fishermen’s Energy to begin construction of the demonstration project.
