Fishermen’s Energy & the future of wind energy in New Jersey

Listen

GUESTS: CHRIS WISSEMANN, JEFF TITTEL and STEFANIE BRAND

We examine the future of wind energy in New Jersey from three different perspectives. Should wind farms come to the Garden State? First, we get an inside look from Fishermen’s Energy CEO, CHRIS WISSEMANN, on the group’s prospects for wind turbines off of the coast of New Jersey and how Fishermen’s fits in with other proposed wind energy projects for the state. Then we speak with JEFF TITTEL, of the Sierra Club of New Jersey, on the potential commercial and environmental benefits of these projects. Finally, we conclude with STEFANIE BRAND, of the Division of Rate Counsel of New Jersey, who will discuss the economics of proposed wind energy projects.
