AVANGRID is one of the cleanest energy companies in the U.S. with an intensity emission seven times lower than the U.S. utility average in 2020.* As a leader in renewable energy, we are strongly committed to reducing our carbon intensity rate by investing in wind and solar generation technologies and to keeping that level well below the industry average.
Because our renewable energy facilities generate electricity with little or no emissions of CO2 and other byproduct pollutants, our customers can receive credit for the carbon emissions they have offset through the purchase of renewable energy.
The 19,391 GWh of renewable electricity produced by AVANGRID in 2020 allowed customers to avoid 14 million metric tons of CO2 emissions. That’s roughly equivalent to the emissions avoided by removing 3 million cars from the road for a year.**
* The environmental and green attributes attributable to the electric generation from the Avangrid Renewables’ facilities have been or likely will be sold or transferred to third parties, who are solely entitled to the reporting and other rights to all renewable energy credits, emissions reductions, offsets, allowances and the avoided emissions of greenhouse gas pollutants, collectively environmental attributes. Avangrid Renewables is not claiming ownership of any environmental attributes from its renewable generation fleet for any purpose, including compliance with any federal or state law or reporting to any federal or state agency, or any other present or future federal, state, local, international, foreign, or voluntary renewable energy, emission reduction, or emissions trading program.
