Read the full story here.

Three offshore wind partnerships have submitted competing bids to a public-private evaluation team, each hoping to score long-term power contracts with the state's electrical utilities.

The Massachusetts Clean Energy RFP, created under the state's 2016 Act to Promote Energy Diversity, makes utilities procure 1,600 megawatts of offshore wind power over the next decade, with the caveat that contracts be cost-effective. The solicitation was issued June 29, and state and utility evaluators, with independent oversight, will choose the first-round winner in March.
