Smart Energy 25 Flywheel : Beacon Power Corporation
Flywheel Electricity Storage Technology (like a mechanical battery) is ideal for solar and wind power plants. They provide a continuous flow of power to the grid when it is night or not windy. They contain no hazardous chemicals, emit no toxins or gases, and uses no fuel.
They are made of magnets, carbon fiber, and steel. They are designed to last 20 years with little or no maintenance.
They are made in america, and they don't require any Lithium as giant storage batteries would.
