Tesla will install a 25 MW / 52 MWh battery energy storage system at the Lake Bonney Wind Farm in South Australia. That will be the second biggest in the country after the 100 MW/129 MWh installed in 2017.
The Infigen Energy’s Lake Bonney Wind Farm is rated at 278.5 MW and thanks to batteries will be able to sell electricity.
They will be able to sell when prices are higher and postpone sales when prices are lower on the National Electricity Market, at the same time taking some grid stabilization tasks. Costs of the Tesla Powerpack installation are estimated at $38 million (AUD).
Also in Victoria, Tesla is installing 25 MW / 50 MWh energy storage system at 60 MW Gannawarra Solar Farm.
