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. Avangrid Renewables with its partner, Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners, are the owners of the Vineyard Wind joint venture. Vineyard Wind controls two lease areas in the Massachusetts Wind Energy Area. The joint venture is developing the first large-scale offshore wind farm in the United States which has been awarded an 800 MW power purchase agreement with Massachusetts utilities.

Park City Wind
Vineyard Wind is also developing the Park City Wind Project to supply clean energy to the state of Connecticut. The 804 MW project was chosen to advance to contract negotiations by the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) in a competitive solicitation process for offshore wind facilities in late 2019. The proposed offshore wind development, located in a wind lease area south of Martha’s Vineyard, would power approximately 14 percent of Connecticut’s electricity supply, and avoid emitting 25 million tons of carbon emissions in the state over the life of the project. The project is named after the City of Bridgeport, Connecticut, often referred to as The Park City, and has the potential to establish Bridgeport as an American hub for the emerging U.S. offshore wind industry.

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.
