This BESS projected to save United Power as much as $1 million annually by storing energy that would otherwise go waste.
The batteries supplied by energy giant Tesla, the battery will have a storage capacity of four megawatts supplied over four hours — enough to simultaneously power 600 to 700 homes. The Tesla battery system United Power and ENGIE utilized for this project is a larger version of the lithium ion battery found in Tesla’s popular electric vehicles. Through years of testing and refinement, Tesla batteries have become the industry standard in energy storage.
