Boston, Mass. – First Wind, an independent U.S.-based renewable energy company, today announced the release of the company’s annual Community Report, covering 2012. The report highlights the company’s growing programmatic and philanthropic activity within its host communities, which are home to the company’s wind projects in operation or advanced stages of development. The 2012 edition details the level of First Wind’s increasing community and educational support, as well as the environmental benefits of its projects.
In 2012, First Wind gave more than $430,000 in support and donations to community organizations. “By building 244 megawatts (MW) at five new project sites in Hawaii, Washington, Maine and New York, 2012 was one of our busiest years yet,” said Paul Gaynor, CEO of First Wind. “As we work to expand our nation’s sources of clean, renewable energy, we seek to work closely with members of our host communities throughout the permitting process, during construction, and the entire span of operation.
Communities are central to everything we do, and I am thrilled to share the highlights of the work we accomplished within our project communities.”
