First Wind, a U.S.-based wind energy company, has completed construction of its 34 MW Bull Hill Wind project, which is located on the ridges of Bull Hill and Heifer Hill in Hancock County, Maine.

The project features 19 1.8 MW wind turbines, and Massachusetts-based utility NSTAR will buy the project's output under a long-term power purchase agreement.

"The Bull Hill project will help NSTAR meet our goal of providing renewable energy to homes and businesses as outlined by the Massachusetts Green Communities Act," explains James Daly, vice president of energy supply at Northeast Utilities, parent company of NSTAR. “We’re looking forward to delivering clean, renewable wind energy from this project to our customers for years to come.”
