Tesla’s massive project to deploy 1GWh of Megapacks to create a giant energy storage system in California with PG&E has received approval from the local authorities (electrek.co)

A California county has approved what officials say will be part of the largest renewable energy and storage facility in the world.

The project, which is a partnership between Tesla and Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E), involves the installation of a massive 1GWh Megapack system at the Moss Landing, California power facility.

The Monterey County Planning Commission unanimously approved the project, which will be known as the Elkhorn Battery Storage Facility.

The project will produce 730-megawatt hours (MWh) of renewable energy during off-peak hours.

Plans for the site indicate the deployment of 449 Megapacks with both solar and wind energy. The site output could be bumped up to 1.095 GWh of energy storage.
