AVANGRID’s Excelsior Connect delivers the underground renewable energy superhighway that will accelerate climate action with clean energy generated in New York to benefit New Yorkers.
With more resilience, more capacity and more reliability, Excelsior Connect is more than a promise realized; It’s the Power of New York.
“As two major needs of our community seamlessly coalesce, clean energy and jobs, we believe the Excelsior Connect project will meet the needs of the community we serve in a myriad of fashions.”
“Greening our cities with mini-forests will help make summer days less hot and can help lower air conditioning, key elements of a transition to clean, affordable energy across the state.”
“This new collaboration will bring a variety of benefits to increase access and possibilities for disadvantaged students by providing new skills, pre-apprenticeship opportunities and ongoing green jobs training.”
“AVANGRID and One Tree Planted intend to work together to align the forest strategy with the goal of supporting diverse communities to create a tangible benefit for sustainability.”
“AVANGRID has provided consistent advocacy for the transition from the good union jobs in the fossil fuel industry to good union jobs in the renewable energy industry.”
“Excelsior Connect and The Trust for Public Land are pleased to engage in community collaboration and stakeholder input on park design to help move New York City toward a more energy efficient future.”
“Excelsior Connect is the type of development we need at this time to provide the energy infrastructure for the state and job opportunities to those who, for far too long, have been denied them.”
“AVANGRID recognizes that the Local is committed to ensuring that renewable energy jobs are good paying union jobs.”
“The Trust for Public Land is pleased to work with One Tree Planted and its partners Excelsior Connect and Avangrid Network.”
AVANGRID and the Excelsior Connect project will deliver a $50M investment into New York communities.
A global energy leader, AVANGRID has invested more than $15B in new energy infrastructure and technology, and now serves 24 states in the US, including 3.3 million energy customers in New York and New England.
