When hurricane Maria hit Puerto Rico, our employees were more than willing to provide their support to the ongoing recovery of the electrical system that the storm had wiped. Eight employees, representing our Avangrid Networks electric utilities, were part of a larger effort coordinated by the New York Power Authority, which includes employees from all major New York utilities. People within the community graciously appreciated and recognized all the sacrifices made by the deployed employees.
AVANGRID announced today that its Park City Wind project was chosen to advance to contract negotiations by the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP).
