Kitty Hawk Wind
Avangrid Renewables, a subsidiary of AVANGRID, Inc. (NYSE: AGR), and part of the IBERDROLA Group, an energy pioneer with one of the largest renewable asset bases in the world, is at the forefront of transforming the way the U.S. produces and uses energy. Strongly positioned to develop, build, and operate the clean energy infrastructure of the future, Avangrid Renewables is already generating power from more than 60 renewable energy projects for its utility-scale customers in the United States, helping lead America’s transition to a renewable energy future, and playing a leading role in the growing U.S. offshore wind industry.
Our energy projects around the country, including the Amazon Wind Farm in northeastern North Carolina, have brought substantial long-term economic benefits to local businesses, schools and communities. We are proud to be a part of the communities where we live and work and are excited to work together with stakeholders in Virginia and North Carolina on the Kitty Hawk Offshore Wind Project to create lasting benefits for generations to come.
The U.S. Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) awarded us a 122,405 acre lease in 2017 for the development of an offshore wind farm off the coast of North Carolina and Virginia. Since then, we have begun the highly technical process of studying the area in more detail as part of early stage project development. You can read about some that work here:(https://www.avanewsblog.com/aerialsurveys)
Additionally, the project will provide considerable economic development benefits to the region during construction, operations and decommissioning. More information on the lease can be found on the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (“BOEM”) website here.
