Storing energy in the form of compressed air

I want to use steam turbines to produce electricity by :
1. using steam produced by solar thermal energy
2. Wind mills will be used to compress air when above turbines will be using steam. At night when there is no sunlight this compressed air will be used to run steam turbines.
My question is how big storage tank is needed for storing compressed air produced by 45 KW eq. wind mills for say 4 hours ?
( I wil be using underground tanks )
Is this feasible ?
