(NYSE: NEE), today announced that it has submitted multiple proposals, collectively called the New Jersey Seawind Connector, into the PJM State Agreement Approach Proposal Window. The proposals are all cost-effective, intended to help New Jersey meet its energy needs, and designed to minimize environmental and marine impacts.
"For more than 20 years, NextEra Energy companies have been supporting New Jersey's energy needs," said Eric Gleason, president of NextEra Energy Transmission. "As the largest generator of renewable energy from the wind and the sun in the world, we support and applaud New Jersey's clean energy goals.
