MANY OF OUR SITES WERE DEVELOPED TO HELP DRIVE NEW ENGLAND’S INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION
Today we are one of the region’s largest providers of carbon free electric generation and energy storage, helping to bring New England into a cleaner energy future.
As New England’s trusted energy partner, FirstLight Power Resources operates the Northfield Mountain hydroelectric plant, a critical backstop for the regional power grid that can produce up to 1,168 megawatts of power with just 10 minutes’ notice.
FirstLight also operates 14 other hydro and solar generating installations in Connecticut and Massachusetts with total capacity of 200 megawatts.
Northfield Mountain is poised to accelerate New England’s 21st century clean energy revolution through both storing surplus power from offshore wind, solar, and other renewable projects–and delivering on-demand power to levelize their output when wind and sun wane.
FirstLight Power also provides the public extensive hiking, fishing, boating, camping, skiing, and other recreational opportunities throughout the 10,000 acres of land and water we oversee in Connecticut and 4,000 acres in Massachusetts’ Pioneer Valley.
