Our energy projects around the country, including the Amazon Wind Farm in northeastern North Carolina, have brought substantial long-term economic benefits to local businesses, schools, and communities. We are proud to be a part of the communities where we live and work and are excited to work together with stakeholders in Virginia and North Carolina on Kitty Hawk Wind to create lasting benefits for generations to come. 

At AVANGRID, we are proud to be an active part of the communities where we live and work, and we believe in giving back to the community. When we build a project, we invest in the community and build long-term relationships that create economic, social, and environmental value.

With the Kitty Hawk Wind project, we are substantially involved in investing in and directly benefiting the communities in which our construction work will proceed. Through the project’s Virginia Beach field office, Kitty Hawk Wind supports numerous Virginia and North Carolina events and organizations through partnerships and sponsorships including:

RePowering Schools - KidWind Challenge
