Batteries are gaining momentum as a good alternative choice. I am happy to see these types of stories.

The geographical drivers on LI are unique and compelling-- will be interesting to see if this comes to fruition and turns into a roadmap for other similar regions across the country or even globe! Thanks for sharing, Michael

"Batteries are gaining momentum as a good alternative choice. I am happy to see these types of stories...when can New York start converting its dirtiest power plants to the batteries state leaders want to see?"

No reason to be happy, Michael - New York's batteries would be charged by its dirtiest power plants, wasting 10-20% of the electricity from them in the process.

Far from a "good alternative choice", using batteries to store electricity on the NYISO grid would create more CO2 emissions than using none at all.
