      Energy Storage in Utility’s Future

      Block Island Power Company President Jeffery Wright believes that the time for a battery storage system at the Block Island Power Company could be “quickly approaching,” meaning that its backup diesel generators — even for emergencies — could soon become a thing of the past. The practical usage of a battery storage system is evident in its proposed application for Deepwater Wind’s latest utility-scale project. Deepwater Wind, the developer that built the Block Island Wind Farm, is proposing a new 144-megawatt Revolution Wind Farm located 30 miles offshore and 12 miles south of Martha’s Vineyard that includes a 40-megawatt-hour battery storage system to serve Massachusetts’s clean energy needs, if approved, by 2023. According to a press release issued by the company, the wind farm, the largest combined offshore energy producer/storage project in the world, will have a battery storage system provided by Tesla, Inc., an automaker, solar panel manufacturer and battery storage company based in Palo Alto, California.
