Avangrid has submitted multiple proposals for New England Wind projects to the Massachusetts-Connecticut-Rhode Island multi-state solicitation for offshore wind power. New England Wind represents two projects: the 791MW New England Wind 1 project and the 1,080MW New England Wind 2 project.

Avangrid submitted a bid for New England Wind 1, a second bid for the combined New England Wind 1 and 2, and additional bids for single-state procurements in Massachusetts, Connecticut, and Rhode Island.

New England Wind 1, formerly known as Park City Wind, is a shovel-ready project in federal lease area OCS-A-0534, approximately 30 miles south of Barnstable, Massachusetts, with landfall under the Craigville Beach parking lot. The project will border the Vineyard Wind 1 offshore wind farm to the south. The project received a Final Environmental Impact Statement from the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management in February 2024, with a Record of Decision (ROD) anticipated in April 2024 and Construction and Operations Plan (COP) Approval anticipated in July 2024.

As a combined bid, New England Wind 1 and 2 offer the region 1,870MW of offshore wind power. New England Wind 2, formerly known as Commonwealth Wind, is only offered as a combined project with New England Wind 1 to capture important economies of scale and support significant grid upgrades.
