Congratulations are in order to our long-time client, Atlantic Shores, for winning New Jersey’s second, landmark offshore wind solicitation. This project will potentially triple the state’s wind energy capacity, firmly reinforcing New Jersey’s position as a national leader in this emerging industry.
More broadly, this is a watershed moment for offshore wind, to not only get our region’s residents back to work post-pandemic but emerge from this crisis as a better, more equitable, and more sustainable region.
Atlantic Shores has the experience to take on this challenging project, with an unparalleled understanding of the regional capacity-building needs for the construction and operations of offshore wind. The firm has committed to an equitable transition to clean energy in New Jersey, cultivating partnerships with key education and workforce training partners to provide opportunities for low-income students that break down barriers and help them secure jobs in the field.
As we make meaningful inroads to move offshore wind forward in the northeast and across the United States, now is the time to make sure we are laying the foundation for an inclusive industry, centering progress on the success of regional economies and local communities.
With ventures like Atlantic Shores at the helm, the U.S. has what it takes to lead the world in generating clean power. Karp Strategies is grateful to be part of this team, shaping an industry based on smart, holistic economic development.
