The Vineyard Wind Connector project will consist of sub-sea and sub-surface electrical transmission lines and a new substation that will connect the Vineyard Wind turbine array to the Massachusetts electric grid.
Construction is scheduled to begin this year and is expected to be operational by 2021. (Source: Vineyard Wind, May, 2019)

The new proposal includes project size options of 400 MW, 800 MW, and 1,200 MW -- with the 1,200 MW project described by the company as "the most cost-effective option for New York ratepayers and one of the largest offshore wind projects in the world."
The proposed project would be sited 85 miles offshore from the nearest New York shoreline and be sub-sea connected to an existing Long Island substation. Vineyard Wind is collaborating with Wakefield, Massachusetts-based transmission developer Anbaric Development Partners.
Vineyard Wind is an offshore wind development company 50 pct owned by funds of Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners and 50 pct owned by Avangrid Renewables, part of the IBERDROLA Group.

Vineyard Wind will compete against proposals announced this week by Deepwater Wind and Baystate Wind, the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) said Wednesday. Vineyard Wind, joint venture between Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners and Avangrid Renewables, would inject 190 MW of power into Connecticut from a proposed windfarm 14 miles south of Martha's Vineyard.
All three proposals are flexible depending on the results of similar bidding processes ongoing in Massachusetts.
Environmental groups and labor leaders have backed DEEP's request for offshore wind proposals, saying the region has the workforce and logistics to play a major role in a growing market in New England.
But supporters of wind power say Connecticut is playing catch-up to Massachusetts, New York, New Jersey and Maryland — each seeking proposals from private developers for wind farms producing between 400 and 1,100 megawatts of power.

PNM is presently constructing three solar plants to supply the center's first two buildings, and
has negotiated agreements with Avangrid Renewables and NextEra Energy Inc. to construct and operate two wind farms and a $75 million solar facility to meet the data center's added energy needs. The companies would sell the generated power to the utility for delivery.
PNM is proposing Avangrid build a wind farm by 2020 east of Estancia in central New Mexico, and that
NextEra constructs a $72 million wind farm before the year end.
