Avangrid has announced its first renewable project in Oklahoma: Pontotoc Wind, a 147.5 MW farm with 33 turbines, set to be constructed in Pontotoc County and expanding the company’s U.S. presence to 25 states.
“We are thrilled to be developing our first renewable energy project in Oklahoma, that will deliver clean, renewable, wind power to the Pontotoc County community along with jobs and local investment,” says Pedro Azagra, Avangrid CEO. “With Pontotoc Wind, we are helping to accelerate a clean energy transition in the state and across the U.S.”
