“backbone” off the U.S. Mid-Atlantic coast will begin construction in 2016 in New Jersey, companies behind the project revealed Tuesday.
Eventually, the AWC will be able to connect 7,000 megawatts of offshore wind turbine, generating enough energy to power 1.9 million households.
For now, the project, which is led by independent transmission company Trans-Elect, developed by Atlantic Grid Development and backed by Bregal Energy, Elia, Good Energies, Google and Marubeni Corporation, is focusing on the so-called New Jersey link.
The underwater transmission line will move cheap North Carolina Power up the coast bypassing Maryland, etc.
MAYBE THEY CAN GET A WIND FARM GOING OFF THE Maryland coast as well... there are a number of islands that could house a power station off the coast.. The jersey one will be a test.. who knows might be we should have been doing this and putting in geo thermal furnaces for years.. ICELAND, GREENLAND AND THE NETHERLANDS utilize the technology daily.
