First Wind signed an agreement to supply electricity generated from its wind power project to the Massachusetts Municipal Wholesale Electric Co (MMWEC).
Under a 25-year, fixed-price contract, First Wind will sell nearly 75 percent of the power generated from the 51 MW Hancock Wind project. MMWEC will resell the power to 17 of its member municipal utilities.
The Hancock wind project will use 17 turbines with a capacity of 3 MW each. It will be located near the 34 MW Bull Hill Wind project, which began operations in November 2012.
