UPC Wind, an independent North American wind power company, has changed its name to First Wind. The company says the name change will not have any impact on its organizational structure or day-to-day operations and is effective immediately.

"Although our name has changed, our core values remain the same," says Paul Gaynor, president and CEO of First Wind. "As First Wind, we remain committed to our community partners, to seeking energy independence and to finding environmentally sensitive solutions to meet the nation's growing energy needs. We look forward to continuing to bring these values to the development, construction and operation of our wind power projects under the First Wind brand."
