HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Connecticut's Department of Energy and Environmental Protection has chosen to move forward with 25 small-scale clean energy projects designed to help address New England's electricity constraints.

The projects, which were announced Monday, were selected from more than 100 submitted proposals and came from Connecticut, Massachusetts, New York, Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine. They include solar, wind and energy efficiency projects that officials say will generate approximately 402 megawatts of power for the region's grid.

Power contracts with Connecticut's two electric distribution companies, Eversource and United Illuminating, still have to be negotiated and will need regulatory approval from the state's Public Utilities Regulatory Authority.

PURA also needs to approve renewable energy projects chosen by Connecticut, Massachusetts and Rhode Island in a separate three-state effort to generate cleaner and less expensive energy.
