Tesla to launch utility-scale 3 MWh energy storage

Tesla Inc. designed and engineered a new battery product specifically for utility-scale projects called »Megapack«. Each Megapack comes from the factory fully-assembled with up to 3 MWhs of storage and 1.5 MW of inverter capacity, building on Powerpack’s engineering with an AC interface. According to the company, Tesla can deploy a 250 MW, 1 GWh power plant in less than three months on a three-acre footprint. Megapack can also be DC-connected directly to solar, creating seamless renewable energy plants.
For utility-size installations like the upcoming Moss Landing project in California with PG&E, Megapack will act as a sustainable alternative to natural gas peaker power plants, says the company. Peaker power plants fire up whenever the local utility grid can’t provide enough power to meet peak demand.
