About Ocean Wind 1

In 2019, Ørsted, with the support of PSEG, received approval from the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities to build New Jersey’s first utility-scale offshore wind farm – Ocean Wind 1.

Located 15 miles off the coast of southern New Jersey, Ocean Wind 1 will provide clean and reliable energy, local jobs across New Jersey, and infrastructure enhancements to the Garden State.

The 1100 MW offshore wind farm will power more than half a million New Jersey homes and contribute significantly to the state’s ambitious renewable energy goals of 50 percent renewable energy by 2030 and a 100 percent clean energy economy by 2050. Construction is expected to commence in the early 2020s, with the wind farm operational in 2024.
