Elia to Join Google, Good Energies, Marubeni to Finance Atlantic Wind Connection.
AWC launched in 2010 and is developed by the AWC team, led by the independent transmission company Trans-Elect. Good Energies, Google and Marubeni Corporation are the other investment sponsors. The innovative project has been hailed by federal, state and industry officials as a major step forward in their effort to site thousands of megawatts of clean wind generation some 15 miles out to sea in federal waters along the Mid-Atlantic coast between New Jersey and Virginia. The project contributes to stimulating jobs and strengthens the security of the electric grid and our national energy independence.
