November 4 (Renewables Now) - NextEra Energy Transmission Mid-Atlantic Holdings LLC, part of US utility group NextEra Energy Inc (NYSE:NEE), announced on Thursday that it has submitted proposals to build transmission lines to deliver offshore wind power into New Jersey.

The company filed multiple proposals into the PJM State Agreement Approach Proposal Window, saying that its schemes contemplate “a variety of different injection locations and designed routes to minimize marine and environmental impacts,” according to its press release.

The proposals are collectively called the New Jersey Seawind Connector, NextEra Energy Transmission said.

In November 2020, the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities asked regional grid operator PJM Interconnection to include the New Jersey state’s offshore wind targets into its transmission planning. The US state seeks to inter-connect up to 7,500 MW of offshore wind.
