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.
