Project will meet State’s climate goals while creating billions of dollars in economic investment.
The New Jersey Board of Public Utilities has awarded the Attentive Energy Two project – a joint venture between TotalEnergies and Corio Generation – a 20-year contract in New Jersey’s third offshore wind solicitation. The contract will enable Attentive Energy Two to deliver 1,34 GW of clean renewable energy into the New Jersey grid, demonstrating its commitment to the state’s mission of achieving a 100% clean energy economy by 2035.
Supplying green power to over 650,000 homes and generating billions of dollars in economic activity statewide, the Attentive Energy Two project will deliver more than 15,000 job-years for New Jersey residents. The project will also support the State’s emission reduction efforts by removing 1.3 million tons of carbon annually or the equivalent of 10% of cars from New Jersey roads.
This contract award comes after four years of extensive community outreach with elected leaders, environmental justice groups, labor advocates, and local residents, among many other stakeholders. We are grateful for Governor Murphy’s leadership and the confidence the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities has shown by choosing us as a trusted partner to help advance the state’s clean energy and economic goals.
The Attentive Energy Two project is a community-driven project committed to building strong partnerships, strengthening the local supply chain, and developing a skilled workforce. As part of the project, Attentive Energy Two will deliver more than $100 million in community investments to support partners from diverse communities statewide.
Reinforcing New Jersey’s foundational investments in offshore wind, Attentive Energy Two will provide an anchor order for establishing an offshore wind tower factory and conduct marshalling activities at the New Jersey Wind Port. In addition, the project will provide an investment to enable the expansion of the monopile manufacturing facility in Paulsboro.
We look forward to delivering this project with wide-reaching opportunity and impact for New Jerseyans across the State and continuing our community conversations to power New Jersey forward.
