Governor Patrick will be in the Berkshire County town of Florida to celebrate the new Hoosac Valley Wind Farm.

It’s a project thats been in the works for years, and it’s nearly complete.

Gov. Patrick is calling the project a milestone for renewable energy in Massachusetts.

When it’s done, it’ll be the largest utility-scale wind farm in the state.

19 wind turbines are being built on a mountain ridge that spans the towns of Florida and Monroe.

The utility company N-STAR will be purchasing all the energy from the turbines.
