New Jersey opens 4GW offshore wind tender

New Jersey has opened its third offshore wind tender, in which it aims to award power deals for up to 4GW of capacity.

The US east coast state has set a deadline for bids of 23 June, and its board of public utilities has scheduled a meeting in December to make a decision on applications.

It has previously awarded 3.75GW of capacity across two rounds, though Republicans have called for a moratorium on development after whales recently washed up dead on the state’s beaches.

New Jersey aims to have a US-leading 11GW of offshore wind capacity operational by 2040.
