    A Bloomberg report says Tesla Powerpacks could be used to store clean energy generated at sea as part of a project submitted to the state of Massachusetts by Deepwater Wind LLC. The plan submitted proposes a facility with 144-megawatt capability leveraging Tesla batteries for massive offshore wind turbines generating energy at peak production times, reserving...

    Yup. Unlike NYS, we're jumping through hoops aiming to pay for battery-stored, off-shore wind generation, that will do little more (in 2025) than replace the nuclear plant we aim to shut in 2019. The intervening years will see higher CO2, no matter how high we price it.

    200MWh of batteries were codified, by DOER, in July, I think.

    Peak daily wind varies by location, although off-shore wind tends to be pretty steady and suitable for a baseload replacement. I wonder why batteries are part of the proposal.
