NSTAR Announces Wind Energy Program

July 2007 - NSTAR Electric, an investor-owned utility serving 1.1 million electric customers in eastern and central Massachusetts, announced plans to provide a wind energy purchase option beginning January 1. The NSTAR Green program will allow basic service customers to purchase half or all of their monthly electricity use from wind energy for a rate premium of 3¢/kWh for the 100% option and 1.75¢/kWh for the 50% option (or a 3.5¢/kWh effective wind energy premium). The utility has signed two 10-year contracts for the wind energy supply. One contract is with PPM Energy to receive 30 MW from the Maple Ridge Wind Farm in upstate New York. The other contract is with TransCanada Corporation for 30 MW from the Kibby Wind Power Project currently under development in Maine. The program requires approval from the Massachusetts Department of Public Utilities.
