Woodbridge Natural Gas Plants Would Back Up Wind Energy, Company Says

As Gov. Phil Murphy aggressively pushes offshore wind development, a proposed natural gas power plant in Woodbridge Township would be a back-up for wind power once it comes ashore.

Since 2016, CPV has operated an existing natural gas power plant in the Keasbey section of Woodbridge. Now, they seek to open a second plant(.)

NJ SEED: If, as suggested, the most advanced offshore wind technology can only operate about 50 percent of the time, it is imperative that back up energy sources be made available. There was a time, before the war on fossil fuels, when natural gas was considered “clean energy”.
