The Newton, MA-based company now plans to raise $228 million by offering 12 million shares at a price range of $18-$20.

First Wind, which was founded in 2002 and booked $75 million in sales last year, plans to list on the NASDAQ under the symbol WIND. Credit Suisse, Morgan Stanley and Goldman, Sachs & Co. are the lead underwriters on the deal, which is expected to price this week.
