Tesla will supply Powerpacks for new big energy-storage project in Australia
The Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA) has revealed in a recent announcement that Tesla will be deploying a new large Powerpack energy-storage project in the country. The project, to be deployed in Victoria, will mark another major ‘growth’ milestone for Tesla’s energy storage division this year.
The new large Powerpack project announced by ARENA will be the second notable energy-storage project to be deployed by Tesla in Victoria. The company was previously chosen for the deployment of a 20 MW battery system for supporting a 204 MW wind farm in Western Victoria’s Bulgana Green Power Hub.
Announcing the new Powerpack project, ARENA said that the project will be a part of a noteworthy energy storage initiative of the Victorian Government. For the project, ARENA will match a $25 million investment by the Victorian Government for jointly funding two large-scale, grid-connected batteries.
The Powerpacks to be supplied by Tesla will comprise a 25 MW / 50 MWh battery which will be co-located and incorporated with the existing solar farm near Kerang in Victoria --- the 60 MW Gannawarra Solar Farm.
According to ARENA’s announcement, the new Powerpack energy-storage system will be co-owned by Edify Energy and its partner Wirsol. ARENA also asserted that the system will be an exemplary demonstration of “how an existing solar farm can be retrofitted with battery storage.”
