AVANGRID is dedicated to being a good neighbor and community partner, which includes not only helping businesses thrive, but providing affordable tools to ensure a cleaner, smarter energy future.
In 2017 alone, the company provided more than $11 million in program assistance throughout our service territories. This includes supporting the University of Connecticut’s Brownfield Initiative, which will prepare students to work on brownfield projects and help create economic opportunities throughout the area.
The American Packaging Corporation project in New York helped to save 170 jobs and expects to create 260 positions. American Packaging Corporation initially planned to expand its facilities in Iowa until we were able to work in collaboration with other community partners to help offset electric and natural gas infrastructure costs and provide system upgrades required for this new facility. In addition, we provided support for energy efficiency enhancements for this facility to further support a more sustainable community.
