The electro-chemical battery energy storage project uses lithium-ion as its storage technology. The project was commissioned in 2017.

Description

The SolarCity Lihue Solar PV Park – Battery Energy Storage System was developed by Tesla Energy Operations. The project is owned by Tesla Energy Operations (100%), a subsidiary of Tesla.

The key application of the project is solar energy shifting.

Contractors involved

Tesla Energy Operations and Tesla have delivered the battery energy storage project.

Additional information

The project uses Powerpack 2, Tesla’s latest generation storage system, which includes a Tesla inverter. Tesla is also providing a performance guarantee in the form of a Capacity Maintenance Agreement (CMA) that will ensure a minimum amount of system energy available that KIUC can utilize each year during the term of the PPA. KIUC signed a 20-year PPA for a 13 MW solar system paired with a 13 MW/52 MWh Powerpack system.
