Wind energy potential dwarfs today’s electricity use, report says | Breaking News | pressofatlanticcity.com

Winds blowing off the Atlantic coast could provide four times more electricity each year than the region currently uses, according to a new report.

“Wind Power to Spare: The Enormous Energy Potential of Atlantic Offshore Wind,” released Thursday by Environment New Jersey Research & Policy Center, said 12 of the 14 coastal states — including New Jersey — have offshore wind potential that exceeds their current electricity consumption.
