About The Project
Currently, our efforts are focused on project development work, including engaging with local stakeholders, businesses, and community members, identifying local economic development strategies, engaging with research organizations and maturing supply chain partnerships.
Additionally, Leading Light Wind's inaugural environmental survey program is underway. The program establishes multiple data collections for site characterization and project design. The data enables Leading Light Wind to identify, avoid, and minimize potential impacts to the environment, wildlife, and communities throughout project development, construction, and operations.
Through robust science and stakeholder engagement, Leading Light Wind is committed to practicing responsible development. To learn more about our commitment to engaging with local and regional fisheries and maritime stakeholders, visit the For Mariners tab.
In August, Leading Light Wind submitted a proposal to the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities (BPU) to deliver up to 2,400 MW of clean energy, enough to power the equivalent of up to 1 million New Jersey homes. The proposal outlines an innovative plan to create up to $3 billion in economic development benefits for the Garden State, advance workforce development in partnership with New Jersey labor unions, build the local supply chain, and provide millions in funding for a community benefits program.

In January, Leading Light Wind submitted its bid for an offshore wind power contract to the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA). The proposal represents a bold vision to deliver up to 2,100 MW of clean energy, enough to power the equivalent of up to 800,000 New York homes. The proposal represents over $13 billion in economic benefits including critical offshore wind infrastructure and supply chain investments, and millions in funding for a community benefits program.
