World’s Largest Battery Storage Plant Unveiled in California
03 February 2017 Current Affairs: Tesla Motor Inc. and Southern California Edison have jointly launched World’s largest energy storage facilities on January 30, 2017 at the utility’s Mira Loma substation in Ontario, California.
The facility was unveiled as part of the massive deployment of grid-connected batteries agreement made between the two companies in September 2016.
The facility would reduce dependence on fossil fuels for generating energy and take advantage of wind and sun to deliver clean energy to power homes, businesses among other things.
It is the largest lithium-ion battery storage project in the world consisting of 396 stacks of Tesla Powerpack units spread across 1.5 acres. Each unit is fitted with 16,000 lithium-ion battery cells. The battery can store upto 80 megawatt hours to power 2,500 homes for a day or 15,000 homes for four hours.
The batteries charge up when there is more renewable energy than demand, ultimately allowing customers to use clean energy during peak hours.
The new facility would reduce the reliance on gas speaker plants, prevent electricity shortages, provide energy security and reduce greenhouse gases.
