In response to Ørsted's announcement that it is withdrawing from New Jersey’s offshore wind project, Senator Michael Testa issued the following statement.
"I was always extremely concerned about what this project meant to our precious marine life, to our commercial fishing industry, to our recreational fishing industry, and what it also meant to our tourism industry,” said Testa (R-1). “I also always questioned whether this was a financially feasible deal. 9.3 million New Jerseyans deserve a complete and total audit to determine how much the state has already invested in the deal. Ørsted is New Jersey’s Solyndra."
