SunEdison showcasing New England's biggest wind farm, which comes online this fall in Oakfield

OAKFIELD, Maine (AP) - SunEdison is showcasing what's going to be New England's largest wind farm this week.

The company is providing the media with an opportunity this week to visit its Oakfield wind project. At 148 megawatts, it will be New England's biggest wind project when it comes online next month.

The Oakfield project involves installing 48 turbines, expanding one substation and building another one, along with construction of 58 miles of 115,000-volt transmission line.

The project will generate enough energy to power the equivalent of about 50,000 homes. The power is contracted to be sold to four Massachusetts utilities as part of a 15-year contract.
