Over the past two years, several expert studies have described the critical role that clean, large-scale energy storage, like FirstLight Power’s Northfield Mountain facility, can play in supporting the deployment of several thousand megawatts of offshore wind generating capacity to support New England’s aggressive climate goals.

FirstLight CEO Alicia Barton is featured in this report by The Boston Globe’s Jon Chesto about expected upcoming changes in federal policy supporting offshore wind, noting that “offshore wind looms large as one of the biggest levers” to drive progress towards goals of a net-zero-emissions electricity sector by 2035.
