In Massachusetts, by contrast, Tesla's batteries would be called upon to help shift megawatt-hours' worth of energy production to times of peak demand. "That's a serious advantage of offshore wind - we can build to the exact size utilities need", Grybowski said.

MA is set to award the bids in December and make them public this week.

A new proposal, reports Bloomberg, by energy supplier Deepwater Wind would use Tesla's batteries in a new offshore wind plant near MA for exactly that objective.

Deepwater Wind says it also provided alternative bids for a larger, 288 MW version and a smaller, 96 MW version of Revolution Wind. Those European projects are focused on frequency regulation - an application that allows for their relatively small proportion of energy storage capacity to generation resource.

Deepwater Wind announced plans Monday for a 144-megawatt wind farm about 12 miles off Martha's Vineyard that it says could power roughly 70,000 homes.

Even bigger offshore wind-plus-storage projects are in the concept phase. Deepwater Wind Chief Executive Officer Jeffrey Grybowski says: "People may be surprised by just how affordable and reliable this clean energy combo will be".

Deepwater Wind said that if the project clears approval, construction should be finished in 2022 and operations begin in 2023.

Deepwater, which built the first United States wind farm off Rhode Island, also plans to compete this year for contracts limited exclusively to offshore wind developers to comply with a MA law to aggressively develop the nascent industry in the US. "And our pricing at any size will be very competitive with the alternatives". The entire lease site has the potential to host 2 GW of offshore wind energy, the company notes.

For the project, final turbine assembly and staging operations will be based at the New Bedford Marine Commerce Terminal. The company's long-term operations and maintenance center will also be located in the city.

Notably, according to Deepwater Wind, Revolution Wind could be built in a single construction season and be developed more cost-effectively with considerably less risk than a larger project. Survey work is already underway at Deepwater Wind's lease area.

Deepwater noted it also plans to submit proposals in an offshore RfP in MA, in which bids will be accepted by December 2018.

Deepwater Wind is America's leading offshore wind developer and the only company operating an offshore wind farm in the United States. Visit www.dwwind.com for more info.
