BP Installs Tesla Battery Storage At South Dakota Wind Farm

Announced earlier this year, the project is the first of its kind at a site wholly owned and operated by BP Wind Energy, as well as the first combined wind and battery project in the Southwest Power Pool, according to BP.

“Battery storage solutions are a proven proposition for storing energy and balancing out the intermittent and variable output of renewable energy sources,” says Laura Folse, CEO of BP Wind Energy. “Insights from this project will enable BP to make better-informed decisions when evaluating and developing battery applications in the future, as well as help us to create a wind energy business that is sustainable for the long term.”
