First 20 MW Flywheel Plant in Full Commercial Operation
The world's first 20 MW flywheel energy storage plant, designed, built and operated by Beacon Power in Stephentown, New York, reached full capacity on June 21, 2011. The plant operates continuously, storing and returning energy to the grid to provide approximately 10% of the state's overall frequency regulation needs.
On July 12, 2011, we hosted a plant inauguration event for approximately 80 guests, including a tour of the facility. See the video here.
