This document is the Proposed Sale Notice (PSN) for the sale of commercial wind energy leases on the Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) offshore New Jersey, pursuant to BOEM's regulations at 30 CFR 585.216. BOEM proposes to offer for sale two leases. The total area comprising the two lease areas is smaller than that described in the Call for Information and Nominations (Call) (77 FR 22130) that was published in April 2011. An explanation for the reduction of the area and detailed information regarding the areas is provided in this notice in the section entitled ``Areas Offered for Leasing.'' BOEM proposes to use a multiple factor auction format for the lease sale. In this PSN, you will find information pertaining to the areas available for leasing, proposed lease provisions and conditions, auction details, the lease form, criteria for evaluating competing bids, award procedures, appeal procedures, and lease execution. BOEM invites comments on these items during a 60-day comment period following this notice. The issuance of the proposed leases resulting from this sale would not constitute an approval of project-specific plans to develop offshore wind energy. Such plans, expected to be submitted by successful lessees, will be subject to subsequent environmental and public review prior to a decision to proceed with development.
