Tesla won the world’s largest energy storage order in Australia so the 100 MW-scale, 100 days challenge in now underway.
The California company will deliver 100 MW/129 MWh system by December 2017 in South Australia. The system will be combined with Neoen’s Hornsdale Wind Farm near Jamestown.
Well, it’s a lot of batteries – like the equivalent of 1,300 Model S (or more).
The Tesla ESS will help to produce more energy from renewables as well as will help solve power shortages, reduce intermittencies, and manage summertime peak load to improve the reliability of South Australia’s electrical infrastructure.
Elon Musk stated that the Australian project will have three times the output of the next biggest battery installation in the world.
