WASHINGTON, D.C.—Congressman Frank Pallone issued the following statement today in response to the Department of the Interior’s announcement of the proposed lease sale for nearly 344,000 acres off of the New Jersey coast for commercial wind energy development. Pallone, a long-time proponent of wind energy, keynoted the Energy Ocean conference in Atlantic City this past June:
“I am pleased that the Department of the Interior is moving ahead to pursue energy development in the Atlantic from renewable resources. Here in New Jersey, we are uniquely positioned to take advantage of our vast coastline to produce clean, renewable energy. By working to harness the natural wind power off of our shores, New Jersey can lead the way in building a far more sustainable energy industry right here at home.
“Wind energy development also has the potential to create jobs, while simultaneously expanding our domestic clean energy resources. These projects are the future of energy policy in our country, and I am glad that the Department of the Interior continues to recognize and support this innovative work.”
