Texas, Walmart, and world’s largest wind power storage system

Notrees

This wind power storage was done with help from government grants and I say Yes to that use of taxpayer money. Storage is crucial if we are to transition to renewable energy on a massive scale. This wind power with battery storage installation is showing us how it can be done.

North Carolina-based Duke Energy just flipped the switch on what the company claims is the world’s largest battery power storage system. Situated at their Notrees wind farm in western Texas, the $44 million, 36-megawatt facility utilizes cutting-edge technologies to provide storage for—and therefore a steady supply of power from—the 153-megawatt renewable energy plant which supplies electricity to Walmart.
