Tesla’s proposed 250 MW/650 MWh virtual power plant in South Australia is pushing through. In a speech at the Australian Energy Storage Energy Conference, Energy Minister Dan van Holst Pellekaan stated that the government would support Tesla’s proposed large-scale renewable energy project.
Tesla’s proposed virtual power plant in South Australia is expected to involve 50,000 low-income and social housing units, all of which would be fitted with 5 kW solar panels and a 13.5 kWh Tesla Powerwall 2 battery storage unit. Together, the 50,000-strong, 250 MW/650 MWh system is expected to provide grid stability by shifting demand away from a stressed grid during peak hours, much like the company’s 100 MW/129 MWh Powerpack farm near Jamestown.
