First Wind's Maine power projects chosen to provide clean energy to Massachusetts utilities

26 Sep 2013
Massachusetts utilities have chosen two Maine wind power projects proposed by First Wind to provide clean wind energy to homes and businesses.

The contracts will provide clean energy from the 147 megawatt Oakfield Wind Project in Aroostook County and the 186 megawatt Bingham Wind Project in Somerset County.

The energy from the Oakfield Wind Project is set to be sold to Massachusetts customers of four utilities as part of a 15 year contract, and will generate enough clean energy to power approximately 50,000 Massachusetts homes.

Construction of the project will begin at the end of this year, with completion in 2015.
