Featured Operations

Avangrid Renewables’ generation projects bring not just electricity, but dollars for local communities. The company’s operations contribute in multiple ways:

  • Local landowners receive regular lease payments from the company when wind turbines or solar panels and associated infrastructure are built on local property. Landowners may continue to use their property for crops, livestock, hunting, etc., but with the security of a regular income stream from the wind farm.
  • Communities also benefit when the company builds and maintains, at its own expense, access roads to generation equipment and outbuildings. Local landowners and local emergency services can then benefit from the presence of these roads, too.
  • Given the enormous capital infrastructure investment, the construction of a single wind farm in a rural county typically makes Avangrid Renewables, one of that county’s largest tax payers. In turn, those property taxes boost community offerings such as education and social services.
