Coastal Wind Link’s unique design that would use an innovative, “meshed grid” offshore transmission design similar to well-developed onshore transmission grids. It seamlessly routes power to areas, as needed, and employs multiple points of interconnection for reliability and resiliency, which are priorities for New Jersey leaders and customers.

Offshore wind farms have thus far been developed using individual radial links to shore. Multi-purpose interconnectors (MPIs) and meshed offshore grids would allow power to be sent where it is most needed and reduce transmission costs.
