Tesla Energy PowerPacks (Tesla)

Infigen Energy, a developer, owner and operator of renewable energy generation assets in Australia, has ordered a 25 MW / 52 MWh energy storage system from Tesla to be deployed at their 278.5 MW Lake Bonney Wind Farm in South Australia.

The project is expected to cost “approximately $38 million” (~$27.5 million USD) and the Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA) along with the Southern Australian Government are each committing $5 million in grant funding ($10 million in total).

They are expecting construction to start “in the coming weeks.”

This would be Tesla’s second mega project in the country providing cheaper, zero-emissions grid services as peaker plants through its battery system.

Its reported that the previous 100MW/129MWh Powerpack project in South Australia reduced grid service cost by 90 percent.
