The Battery-Storage Solution
Battery Storage At Danskammer Point
As we transition away from fossil fuels to a renewable energy economy, new technology will enable us to store power generated from clean sources. NY State has begun prioritizing battery energy storage systems (BESS), which are a great solution to complement solar and wind power! Battery storage could be built right on the Danskammer Point site and bring economic and clean energy benefits without polluting our communities.
