US: A New Jersey peninsula across the Hudson River from New York City could become the home of a 7.5MW wind project by 2014.
The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey project, planned for an industrial zone on the outskirts of Jersey City, would power a marine terminal with excess power sold into the grid. "The agency is determined that it's going to look for green-energy resources and this seemed like a natural one," says spokesman Ron Marsico. "Wind studies out on that peninsula showed that it's a good place for the windmills."
