Speaker Coughlin Statement on Offshore Wind Awards

TRENTON (January 25, 2024) – Speaker Craig J. Coughlin issued the following statement regarding yesterday’s offshore wind awards.

“These awards put New Jersey back on track to be the national leader on offshore wind power. Developing clean, renewable, and affordable energy miles off the coast is the most responsible course of creating new well-paying union manufacturing and construction jobs while also protecting the Jersey shore tourism economy. Climate change remains an existential threat to New Jersey’s coastal communities and we should do our part to promote sustainable solutions with innovative projects like this.”
