36 megawatts of battery storage in Texas will now be able to store enough energy to power 10,000 homes.
The storage facility is connected to a 153 megawatt wind farm. Called Notrees Wind Farm and Battery Facility, which is owned by Duke Energy, just added the batteries along with a $22 million matching grant from the US Department of Energy.
A report released by the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) states that wind and solar will be more cost-competitive than natural gas over the next two decades.
If you want to know more about this and other topics directly from end users of energy storage technologies join us at one of these annual events: The Energy Storage World Forum (Grid Scale Applications), or The Residential Energy Storage Forum, or one of our Training Courses.
