Solicitation sought a desired OSW capacity target of 1,200 MW to 4,000 MW. By two (2) Board Orders, each dated January 24, 2024, the Board awarded two (2) of New Jersey’s largest OSW
projects to date, the 1,342 MW Attentive Energy Two project and the 2,400 MW Leading Light Wind project. The Board awarded these projects the full SAA capability of the Larrabee Tri-Collector solution.

On October 25, 2023, the Board rejected the Prebuild Infrastructure (“PBI”) proposals that were submitted as part of the Third Solicitation, finding that the PBI being awarded to a developer who also receives an award as a Qualified Offshore Wind Project represented an unreasonable risk to New Jersey ratepayers and directed Board staff to develop a separate PBI solicitation.

On November 17, 2023, the Board issued a PBI Solicitation and the Prebuild Solicitation Guidance Document in which it “explained that the Prebuild envisioned a single construction effort to install the necessary Duct Banks and associated access Cable Vaults to house transmission Conduits for future use of up to four (4) OSW Qualified Projects, thereby enabling these projects
to access the wholesale transmission system.” Any project awarded through the PBI Solicitation will be submitted to PJM for incorporation into PJM’s regional transmission expansion plan
(“RTEP”), and will also be submitted for cost recovery through the cost allocation provisions for Public Policy Projects, approved by FERC. The Prebuild Solicitation Application Submission
Deadline is April 3, 2024, and an award is expected in Q3 2024.
