You sure on that?I think the location applied for shows its more than that. Looks to be off shore.
You sure on that?
Yes. It doesn’t matter what ‘fuels’ the power you export, it only matters you’re physically connected to the grid, and have the capacity to export to it. Any connection to the grid needs to comply with the grid code, and if you ever want to be able to sell your capacity for frequency response into the market you’ll need to be despatchable by grid, so you’d need an EDL connection, registration as a BMU, and you’ll need to have the appropriate metering systems in place.If you're just running a megapack and inject power into the grid, does that classify you as a "generator"?
So it may well be that Tesla is just tapping into the rather lucrative market of peak generation with megapacks (or terapacks) and not really having anything to do with renewable power sources.
Allegedly, the megapack in Australia has already paid for itself...
It's interesting. When cell production is very much the rate limiting step, Tesla seem to be putting their fingers in possibly far too many pies. I would be delighted to see a cheaper and more energy-dense Powerwall 3...
