The capacity of the new modular battery Megapack from Tesla beats all records


New project Megapack, presented by the companyTesla, is designed to provide electricity to businesses and cities without interruption. The authors of Megapack wanted to create an opportunity for the rapid construction of power plants, based on renewable energy.

The system of huge industrial batteriesreally impressive. It can store a huge stock of electricity, becoming the base for the power plants of the future. The capacity of each cell is 3 MWh. This is 14 times higher than the Tesla Powerpack battery, presented by the company 4 years ago. Its capacity was 210 kWh. As tesla representatives say, they only need 3 months to build a gigawatt power station. It should be noted that it will take about a year to build a traditional counterpart.

New batteries can directly connect to solar panels. The complex of these batteries is controlled by a central hub. He can monitor the current capacity and capacity of the station.

Megapack is quite realistic to use also in the roleenergy storage. Enterprises that have too much of it will then be able to sell it. In general, the project was invented to provide any localities with the ability to quickly deploy power plants (if there is a shortage of energy). The advantages of this solution are obvious: environmental friendliness, as well as speed and ease of installation.
