Avangrid Renewables is excited about the opportunity to play a leading role in the growing U.S. offshore wind industry, a reliable source of clean energy with significant job-creation potential in the United States.
Vineyard Wind is developing the first large-scale offshore wind farm in the United States. The project is located 14 miles south of Martha’s Vineyard, off the coast of Massachusetts, which expects the first phase of the project to come online in 2021. The Commonwealth of Massachusetts selected Vineyard as the preferred solution in the spring of 2018 to build an 800 megawatt (MW) wind farm and electricity transmission project to deliver clean offshore wind power to Massachusetts customers. Avangrid Renewables is the 50% owner of Vineyard Wind along with Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (CIP).

Avangrid Renewables won the Kitty Hawk offshore wind area bid from the federal government to lease 122,405 offshore acres off the coast of North Carolina and Virginia, and has begun the highly technical process of studying the area in more detail as part of early stage project development.
