Deepwater Wind is proposing a new approach to meet the growing energy need on Long Island’s South Fork with a new offshore wind farm and two new battery energy storage systems.

Deepwater Wind is proposing to supply capacity and renewable energy from the 90MW, 15-turbine Deepwater ONE – South Fork project. This will be the first phase of a regional offshore wind farm the company is developing roughly 30 miles southeast of Montauk, New York. To complement the wind farm, Deepwater Wind is also proposing to build two new battery energy storage facilities – one in Montauk and the other in Wainscott. The facilities will consist of lithium-ion battery technology designed and installed by General Electric The energy storage facilities will be operational by 2018. Together, the sites could store 15MW of energy. Construction on Deepwater ONE – South Fork could begin as early as 2019, with commercial operations by 2022.
