Customers can even watch TV for a few hou...

Tesla plugs big batteries into PG&E’s electric grid 16.2.2017 SFGate: Business & Technology

The project, operational since the start of the month, represents a collaboration between PG&E and Tesla on one of California’s biggest energy goals — energy storage. [...] state regulators have ordered utilities to invest in projects to store energy when it’s plentiful and use it when it’s needed most. The Browns Valley project may also help PG&E avoid upgrading that substation to handle rising electricity demand in the area. The PG&E project, designed and installed by Cupertino Electric, includes 22 Tesla Powerpack batteries, which together can store half a megawatt of electricity. The company estimates that one third of the battery cells produced at its rapidly expanding Gigafactory will go toward stationary storage products, rather than cars. [...] as the number of energy ...
