The US company announced the start-up of what it claims is the largest lithium-ion battery storage plant in the world. It is an effort to reduce dependence on fossil fuels. This plant prevents electricity shortages, provides clean energy and reduces greenhouse gases.
The facility is located in Ontario, California and consists of 396 Tesla Powerpacks (batteries the size of a cabinet and a total output of 20 MW), spread over 1.5 hectares, with the capacity to store 80 megawatt-hours of electricity, enough to maintain more than 2,500 homes a day or 15,000 homes for up to 4 hours.
The system is designed to charge batteries when there is more renewable energy on demand, ultimately allowing consumers to use clean energy during peak hours.
California is on its way to having super abundance of energy during the day, when solar panels produce power, but supply falls with the sun, precisely as demand increases, with residents coming home and increasingly charging their electric cars. .
The plant has been built in record time, just three months. With its 80 MWh of capacity, it will help the state's electricity grid balance peaks in electricity demand with the production of renewable energy.
California has become home to the most ambitious projects for energy storage, with 15% of the capacity worldwide.
California is undertaking large green energy projects to combat climate change. The state has set a goal of producing up to 50% of its electricity from renewable sources by 2030.
