Today, the Iberdrola group, through its sub-holding company AVANGRID1, is present in 24 US states and distributes electricity and gas in New York, Maine, Connecticut and Massachusetts. Of its 9,542 MW of installed capacity in the country, 8,702 MW —91.21 %— come from wind and solar sources.2 Nota

As part of its commitment to renewable energy, Avangrid Renewables — a subsidiary of AVANGRID — is developing the Lund Hill photovoltaic plant, Washington state's biggest solar project. Located in Klickitat County, the plant has an installed capacity of 194 MW.

The project, which required an investment of more than $100 million, occupies an area of approximately 728 hectares in what was the first land lease in the state of Washington for a solar complex. The area has been leased to private landowners and the Washington State Department of Natural Resources.

The state authorities anticipate that Lund Hill will contribute to combating climate change as well as generating jobs and reducing energy costs by thousands of dollars.

Power purchase agreement (PPA) with PSE

Avangrid Renewables has reached an agreement with Puget Sound Energy (PSE) External link, opens in new window. to supply it with 100 % of the output from the Lund Hill PV plant. The electricity goes to PSE's innovative renewable energy programme, Green Direct, to which more than 50 customersExternal link, opens in new window. , including the Washington state government, have already subscribed. The initiative allows electricity to be purchased entirely from renewable resources (wind and solar) from local and specialised sources. 

Iberdrola, world leader in renewable energies

At Iberdrola, we dare committed to renewable energy more than two decades ago as a fundamental pillar on which to build our safe, clean and competitive business model. Thanks to this vision, we are today world leaders in renewables, reaching 42,387 MW of clean energy in operation  at the end of Q1 2024.

This commitment is reflected in our Strategic Plan, in which we will allocate €15.5bn gross to renewables. More than half of this amount is focused on offshore wind in the US, UK, France and Germany; 28% on onshore wind and 18% on solar.
