Tesla bids to deploy one of the biggest batteries in the world with 244 Megapacks in Hawaii
Tesla is working on a bid to deploy one of the biggest battery systems in the world with 244 Megapacks, Tesla’s latest giant battery system, on a Hawaiian island.
After a lot of rumors and anticipation, Tesla launched its “Megapack” last year.
It’s the company’s latest energy storage product, after the Powerpack and the Powerwall, and it is meant as an even bigger option targeting electric utility projects.
According to Tesla, a single Megapack has up to 3MWh of storage capacity and a 1.5MW inverter.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk asked utilities to buy the new Megapack to replace polluting and inefficient peaker plants.
Some electric utilities have started taking Musk up on his offer as we started hearing about several new Megapack deployments over the last few months.
