Tesla deploys Powerpacks to protect the University of South Florida against blackouts

When the grid is in operation, Tesla’s Powerpacks will be used to better take advantage of the solar power produced by the solar array.

If the grid suffers a blackout, the Powerpacks will be able to independently run the garage.

Stempien explained before a demonstration in front of the media yesterday:

Tesla wins another big Powerwall contract

Tesla’s 100MW/129MWh Powerpack project in South Australia provide the same grid services as peaker plants, but cheaper, quicker, and with zero-emissions, through its battery system.

It is so efficient that it reportedly should have made around $1 million in just a few days in January, but Tesla later complained that they are not being paid correctly because the system doesn’t account fo More

Tesla Powerwall gets new ‘Storm Watch’ to auto detect storms and prepare by storing energy

Last year, Tesla started integrating features for Powerwall and solar customers to its mobile for vehicle owners.

With the simple new app (pictured above and below), users can easily see where the electricity powering their home is coming from: grid, solar installation, or Powerwall. It will enable Tesla customers to have a greater visibility in their power generation and consumption.

Thus far, batteries haven’t taken over grids around the world. Due to the sheer expense of batteries, large installations have generally been government mandated or heavily subsidized. In South Australia, though, Tesla’s giant 100MW/129MWh battery has seen a lot of success—not by selling power to meet general demand but by providing so-called “frequency response services.” More
