Prompted by residents advocating for renewable energy, the municipal electric utility in Hull, MA, has installed two wind turbines that together produce over 10% of the town’s electricity. Hull 1, commissioned in 2001 is a 660 kW system that in its first year eliminated the town’s cost for street lighting and generated over $150,000 from sales of RECs. Hull 2, commissioned in 2006, is a 1.8 MW system built on the site of a former landfill. Hull residents voted in favor of installation of four additional turbines to be located offshore. The town contracted with Vestas Wind Systems for the production and installation of the two wind projects.
