Atlantic Shores Offshore Wind, LLC is a 50:50 partnership between Shell New Energies US LLC and EDF Renewables North America and its Lease Area is located approximately 10-20 miles off the coast of New Jersey between Atlantic City and Barnegat Light. In June of 2021, the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities awarded Atlantic Shores Offshore Wind a contract to develop 1,510 MW in offshore wind energy, enough to power up to over 700,000 homes! It is the largest single project in New Jersey and the third largest in the United States to date.
Our first project, which aims to begin construction in 2024, includes a number of essential investments and initiatives, including an agreement to train and hire local workers for the construction and maintenance of the wind project, an innovative 10 MW green hydrogen pilot with South Jersey Industries and a turbine nacelle assembly facility at the New Jersey wind port. Over its lifetime, the wind project will create thousands of well-paying jobs.
