Avangrid, Amazon Partner on 98.4 MW Onshore Oregon Project


Avangrid has signed a new PPA with Amazon to source energy from Avangrid’s 98.4 MW Amazon Wind Farm Oregon – Leaning Juniper IIA, located in Gilliam County. 

This repowering project is expected to extend the life of the existing wind farm and increase its efficiency. It consists of 40 turbines, estimated to produce enough energy to power 22,800 homes annually.

“We are proud to have signed this agreement with Amazon, a company that shares our commitment to accelerating the global transition to renewable energy,” says Pedro Azagra, Avangrid CEO. “With projects like this, we are not only supporting Amazon’s climate goals, but creating jobs and contributing to local communities.”

“Amazon is excited to announce our first utility-scale renewable energy project in Oregon,”  adds Amazon’s Abhishek Sharma. “The project adds to the 2 gigawatts of renewable energy capacity Amazon has already enabled across the western U.S. grid. This has contributed to Amazon being the world’s largest corporate purchaser of renewable energy for four years running, and will help Amazon remain on a path to utilizing 100% renewable energy for the electricity powering its operations by 2025.”

Avangrid has executed contracts to recycle all turbine blades decommissioned with this project, estimated to divert more than 1,000 tons of mass from landfill.
