Jobs and Investment
Turbine assembly and staging operations will be located at the New Bedford Marine Commerce Terminal. In addition, Revolution Wind’s long-term operations and maintenance center will be in the City. Together, this project will create hundreds of local jobs in Massachusetts.
Clean, Renewable, Reliable
Revolution Wind will be the largest combined offshore wind and energy storage project in the world. This offshore wind-batter storage pairing will reliably deliver renewable energy – backed up with energy storage – during the times when the grid needs it most.
Smart, Affordable Approach
Revolution Wind will advance offshore wind development in Massachusetts by providing an avenue to launch the industry with an initial smaller-scale project, and then phase in larger projects. This way, ratepayers will benefit from increased competition and declining costs.
WHAT: A utility-scale offshore wind farm paired with an energy storage system. Revolution Wind will be the largest combined offshore wind and energy storage project in the world.
