CAROLL PLANTATION, Maine — The Providence Journal on Thursday reported that National Grid, an East Coast utility, has signed a proposal to purchase electricity from the Bowers Mountain wind farm to power Rhode Island.

The proposal is subject to approval from the three-member Rhode Island Public Utilities Commission.
