PAULSBORO, N.J. (AP) — A New Jersey brownfield where once BP distributed oil may soon become one of the first places where turbines are assembled for wind farms off the Atlantic Ocean.

The site is poised to become the chief benefactor of a bill signed into law Thursday by Gov. Chris Christie that will help finance enough wind energy to power 1 million homes and provide up to $100 million in tax credits for wind energy facilities.

“We’re taking an abandoned, contaminated site which is an eyesore and turning it into the future of New Jersey’s clean, renewable energy,” said Jeff Tittel, director of the Sierra Club’s New Jersey chapter. “Wind is a win, win, win for New Jersey.”
