The capacity of the existing transmission line is in the vicinity of 450 megawatts so there will be large transformers, reactors, and other substantially sized equipment that will be delivered. ...Ken, thanks for posting that. I have been very interested in how all that offshore wind power will get inland to the NJ grid. Conveniently the Oyster Creek nuke plant has shutdown, which gives ~600 MW(?) of capacity from the bay to the NJ grid backbone. I have read that "they" (presumably NJPBU, PJM, and the windmill folks ) are planning to potentially double(?) the capacity on the same ROW. (don' t know how the windmill power will cross the coastal strip to get to they bay, though?
