BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) - The municipal utility in Vermont’s largest city says it’s going to be buying renewable electricity from a new wind farm in the state of Maine.

Burlington Electric announced Thursday it has signed a 10-year contract to buy just over a quarter of the electrical output from the 17-turbine Hancock Wind Project in Hancock County, Maine.

Burlington Electric announced in 2014 that 100 percent of its power comes from renewable sources like wind, solar, biomass and hydro-electric.

The utility announced that its contract with Hancock Wind was for 13.5 megawatts of electricity, 9 percent of Burlington’s energy needs.
