Tesla Batteries May Be Used for Winter Backup on Deepwater’s 90MW Offshore Wind Farm

By [email protected] On Monday, Deepwater Wind announced it’s asking Tesla Energy to supply a 40-megawatt-hour battery system to help turn a proposed 144-megawatt Revolution Wind farm off the Massachusetts coast into a dispatchable energy resource.

It’s by far the biggest battery meant for an offshore wind farm. It dwarfs the 2-megawatt lithium-ion system Dong Energy plans to build at a 90-megawatt wind farm by year’s end, and the 1-megawatt-hour battery Statoil plans to build next year to support its 30-megawatt Hywind wind farm.

But the economics of the Deepwater-Tesla proposal are also significantly different. Those European projects are focused on frequency regulation
