Deepwater Wind has unveiled plans for its newest project off the American coast: Revolution Wind, a utility-scale offshore wind farm paired with an energy storage system. Deepwater Wind is proposing the 144MW Revolution Wind farm – paired with a 40 megawatt-hour battery storage system provided by Tesla.
Deepwater Wind also provided alternative bids for a larger 288MW version of Revolution Wind and a smaller 96MW version. At 144MW, Revolution Wind could be built in a single construction season. Deepwater Wind will build Revolution Wind in the company’s federal lease site off the coast of Massachusetts. The site is located 30 miles from the mainland and about 12 miles south of Martha’s Vineyard. If approved, local construction work on Revolution Wind would begin in 2022, with the project in operations in 2023. Survey work is already underway at Deepwater Wind’s lease area.
