Wind farm ownership issue addressed

VW independent/submitted information

Some people are apparently confused by a merger of companies that has affected the Blue Creek wind farm.

Although several websites have claimed that Iberdrola Renewables has sold its local wind farm to another company, Avangrid AGR_VER_POS_CMYKRenewables, the truth is that Avangrid Renewables is Iberdrola Renewable’s new corporate name following a merger with UIL Holdings Corporation in 2015.

“Iberdrola Renewables recently changed its legal name to Avangrid Renewables in order to align with the branding of our newly-formed parent company, and is in the process of rebranding,” said Paul Copleman, communications manager for the company.

Avangrid is part of the Iberdrola Group, an energy pioneer with the largest renewable asset base of any company in the world.
