ORANGE, Conn.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Today AVANGRID,
Inc.
(NYSE:AGR), a diversified energy company, announced the pricing
of $600 million in aggregate principal amount of its 3.150% notes due
December 1, 2024. The notes will be direct unsecured and unsubordinated
obligations of AVANGRID. The offering is expected to close on November
