Wind Firm Seeks More Time to Revise NJ Application

The company likely closest to placing wind turbines off the coast of New Jersey is seeking more time to file an amended application with the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities.

The extension request by Cape May-based Fishermen’s Energy is to be taken up Wednesday by the board.

Two consultants have raised serious questions about the initial application, including whether the firm has sufficiently documented the project’s economic benefits.

Company spokeswoman Rhonda Jackson said Tuesday the group is aiming to file an amended application June 1. The company still hopes to be the first admitted into the state’s offshore wind energy program.

Fishermen’s Energy wants to put five or six turbines 2.8 miles off the coast of Atlantic City in a $200 million project intended to provide enough electricity to power 10,000 homes.
