Offshore Wind Citizen Survey 2021
Clean Ocean Action is seeking information from citizens about their knowledge of and thoughts about OSW energy development off the coast of NY and NJ. Offshore wind (OSW) energy is in development off the NY/NJ coast. There are 9 lease areas with projects in various stages of proposal and development; of these projects, 4 have already been approved to move forward in the application process. Currently, these 4 projects alone will bring approximately 400 turbines to the coastal waters off NY and NJ.
