New Jersey Building Huge Wind Farm!

Great news from the Times. New Jersey is all set to join sister cities Rhode Island and Delaware in the installation of some serious wind turbines! Go East Coast! Get down with your green self!

Read on:

"The proposal by Garden State Offshore Energy includes installing 96 turbines to produce as much as 346 megawatts of electricity, enough to power about tens of thousands of houses. The turbines would be arranged in a rectangle about a half-mile long by one-third of a mile wide.

The selection, which includes access of up to $19 million in state grants, is part of New Jersey’s Energy Master Plan, which calls for 20 percent of the state’s energy to come from renewable sources by 2020."

We love seeing wind farms sprouting up all over the place like wonderful clean-energy producing mushrooms of goodness.

Congratulations to New Jersey, to Garden State Offshore Energy, and to all the lucky families who will get their power sustainably once the farm is pumping that juice.

Seriously great news.
