First Wind Holdings Inc., a Boston-based wind-farm developer, agreed to sell 333 megawatts of capacity from two Maine projects to Massachusetts utilities.

The company sold power from its 147-megawatt Oakfield Wind project in Aroostook County and the 186-megawatt Bingham Wind plant in Somerset County through a competitive bidding process overseen by the Massachusetts Department of Energy Resources, First Wind said today in a statement.

The utilities that will purchase the power are Northeast Utilities (NU)’ Nstar and Western Massachusetts Electric units, National Grid Plc (NG/) and Unitil Corp. (UTL), John Lamontagne, First Wind’s director of communications said in an e-mail. Terms weren’t disclosed.
