Transmission Project Would Carry Offshore Wind Power to New Jersey Grid

National Grid Ventures and Con Edison Transmission recently submitted a proposal to build transmission infrastructure that will carry offshore wind power to New Jersey’s electric grid.

The Garden State Energy Path will enable delivery of approximately 6 gigawatts of offshore wind power from its point of landfall at the Sea Girt National Guard Training Center to the Larrabee Tri-Collector Station in Howell Township.

The project will be underground, allowing the cables to be protected from storms and other extreme weather that can cause customer outages.

The project consists of “pre-build infrastructure” that will house the cables carrying electricity generated by four wind projects to the grid. This project is foundational to helping New Jersey reach its goal of 11 gigawatts of offshore wind by 2040.

If awarded, the Garden State Energy Path would be in operation by early 2029, ready for use by selected New Jersey offshore wind farms.
