State: New Jersey to spend $6M for wind and other clean energy projects

New Jersey is spending almost $6 million to train workers for jobs in the wind energy industry and to support young companies that deal in clean energy.
The New Jersey Economic Development Authority and the state Board of Public Utilities said Wednesday they have approved two funding agreements.
In the first, the state will provide $4.5 million to support workforce development projects aimed at preparing more New Jersey workers for jobs in offshore wind. In the second, $1.25 million will be made available to support early-stage, New Jersey-based clean tech companies.
