Con Edison proposes a 2.4-gigawatt offshore grid link to New Jersey

Last Updated on 08th January 2024

Con Edison Transmission Inc, a subsidiary of Consolidated Edison Inc, unveiled a plan to build a transmission link to transport 2.4 GW of offshore wind energy to New Jersey.


The grid network, dubbed Clean Link New Jersey, will connect various offshore wind farms to the grid's onshore high-voltage direct current (HVDC) network to deliver electricity.


The "mesh-style" network will be flexible and modular, allowing new plants to be connected after they begin generating electricity.


Con Edison will build undersea transmission lines within a predetermined "power corridor" as part of the project to reduce the environmental effects. HVDC collector platforms will line the corridor.


"Our proposed project will create good-paying jobs and economic opportunity, while also preserving the beauty of the Jersey shoreline and minimizing disruption to New Jerseyans," said Stuart Nachmias, president and CEO of Con Edison Transmission.


As part of its strategy to reach 100 percent clean energy by 2050, New Jersey wants to install 7,500 MW of offshore wind by 2035.
