Vermont-based municipal utility Burlington Electric Department (BED) has reached an agreement with renewable energy company First Wind to buy power from the planned 54 MW Hancock Wind project near Ellsworth, Maine.

First Wind says it will sell 25% of the power and renewable energy certificates generated at the wind farm for the next 10 years under a fixed-price agreement with the Vermont utility.

BED is seeking to source 100% of its supply needs from renewable energy, First Wind notes. The addition of the energy from the Hancock Wind project will bring the utility to 92% renewable-sourced power.
