New Offshore Wind Farm In Massachusetts May Partner With Tesla

By Brian Spaen

Massachusetts is looking to expand their reach in the green energy movement by seeking out renewable energy generated at sea. Offshore wind turbines are gaining popularity, but all come with one big question: Who, or what, is going to power them? In this case, Deepwater Wind is proposing that Tesla's batteries do the job.

Of course, this wouldn't be Tesla's first move into the realm of wind energy. In fact, Tesla has already made strides in the movement of backing up renewable energy with their Powerpack facilities. For example, they will be installing the world’s biggest battery storage area in South Australia this fall to aid in a local wind farm’s efficiency issues.

In their own right, Deepwater Wind has been a leader in pushing the United States toward offshore wind power generation. They were behind the Block Island Wind Farm that’s located off the coast of Rhode Island. This was the first offshore wind farm activated in the US and serves roughly 2,000 customers that reside in Block Island. Deepwater Wind’s headquarters are located at Providence, Rhode Island.
