The New Jersey Board of Public Utilities has awarded $11.3 million to five renewable energy companies.

Four of the grants were awarded as part of the Board’s Grid Supply Renewable Energy Program and will help PSEG Energy Technologies install a landfill gas power plant, assist Hoburn Management Corporation with the installation of solar power systems on 40 to 50 roofs, and aid Clipper Windpower and Community Energy in their efforts to develop wind power projects. The fifth grant will provide $300,000 to Atlantic Renewable Energy Corporation to study the feasibility of offshore wind power development along the New Jersey coastline.
