Proposed Offshore Wind Farm Will Store Power with Tesla Batteries
Energy supplier Deepwater Wind and Tesla may team up provide clean power to the state of Massachusetts at peak times with an offshore wind farm and Powerpack batteries — the latest in both companies’ plans to expand clean energy drives.
Wind Farm And Powerpack
Energy supplier Deepwater Wind hopes to team up with Tesla to provide clean power to the state of Massachusetts during peak times. Bloomberg reports that the company has proposed the building of an offshore wind farm with a 144-megawatt capability and a 40-megawatt storage capacity thanks to Powerpack commercial storage batteries. The batteries would store power collected during high generation times and save it for heavy use hours. This is how other facilities with Tesla Powerpack batteries work, such as the Kauai energy storage installation that went online earlier in 2017.
