N.J. Assembly Republicans Laud BPU Action to Block Impractical Wind Farm Project

N.J. Assembly Republicans Laud BPU Action to Block Impractical Wind Farm Project
BY ROBBIE KENNEY
SPECIAL TO NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM

Assembly Republicans Alison Littell McHose and Parker Space commended the Board of Public Utilities for taking decisive action on behalf of New Jersey’s electric rate-payers with another denial of an offshore wind farm near Atlantic City.

“In this state, we pay some of the highest electric rates in the nation. It is refreshing to see a decision supporting the rate-payers,” said McHose, R – Sussex, Warren and Morris. “There is a popular fallacy that wind power is free. It is far from it, and New Jersey homeowners and employers would have been left holding the bag for the almost $200 million cost of this idealistic project. Economically and realistically, the wind farm is unfeasible.”

The proposed 25-megawatt wind-turbine farm had already been rejected once by BPU. In both opinions, BPU cited concerns about the project being too expensive for the utility rate-payers who would be funding it.
