A.C. Project to Employ More than 200 Construction Workers
By Chris Colabella
For many years, talk of harnessing the wind to produce enough energy for use by the masses was just that…talk. However, after receiving the Green Light and up to $4 million from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) for an offshore wind technology demonstration project, Cape May-based Fishermen’s Energy intends to harvest the wind and the sea, side by side, in an environmentally responsible and sustainable manner.
Fishermen’s Energy is gearing up to construct a demonstration offshore wind farm, potentially the first in the country. The project would make “Atlantic City the birthplace of offshore wind” in the United States, said Rhonda Jackson, communications director.
