Putting a battery with a wind farm in the US is more or less unheard of,  because even battery backed wind is typically only able to bid for a fraction of its output in capacity and wholesale markets. So when Glidepath sent us a release about it this week, whereby it plans to buy up 149 MW of wind farms in North Texas and pair them with batteries, we took note.
