Storing wind power using compressed air energy storage

CAES from wind power

Washington state has two potential sites where excess electricity generated by wind turbines could be stored underground as compressed air then converted back nearly instantly when needed. Compressed air energy storage is already in use in Alabama and Germany in man-made salt caverns. The Washington sites would use already existing natural caverns deep underground. One site would also harness geothermal power to aid in production.
