Renewable energy company First Wind begun construction on 17 MW (AC) of solar projects in the Massachusetts communities of Warren and Millbury.

Representing the company’s first set of renewable energy projects in its home state and its first solar development, First Wind is breaking ground after it recently secured financing and finalized a long-term power purchase agreement (PPA) with the University of Massachusetts (UMass), as well as net metering agreements with the towns of Millbury and Orange.

First Wind’s solar power project portfolio in Massachusetts will include a 3 MW (AC) project in Millbury and a 14 MW (AC) project at three sites in the town of Warren.
