BOSTON (AP) — A Rhode Island offshore wind developer has entered the fray of companies vying for the largest renewable energy contract in New England history.

Deepwater Wind announced plans Monday for a 144 MW wind farm about 12 miles off Martha's Vineyard that it says could power roughly 70,000 homes. The Providence-based-company already operates a small wind farm off Block Island. It says it'll pair the proposed farm with a battery storage system provided by Tesla.

Massachusetts is seeking projects to provide up to 1,200 MW of energy from water, wind and solar power. The deadline for proposals was July 27. The state says all bids will be made public later this week.

Among the announced bidders are TDI New England; Emera Inc.; Eversource; Central Maine Power and Avangrid; National Grid and Citizens Energy.
