Post revolutionizing the smart and sustainable technologies industry with its battery technology in Australia, Tesla is now moving northwards towards Canada. Tesla is reportedly working with Nova Scotia Power of Canada and has entered an agreement to supply Powerpack and Powerwall 2 batteries for the wind energy system. The Intelligent Feeder Project, as this current project in Canada is being called, is aimed at using Tesla’s battery system to store any extra energy that is generated by the wind power generators during times of low demand so as to utilize this surplus power during short supply.
For the record, Tesla’s power storage battery system is a commendable addition to the smart and sustainable technologies industry and to the communities around the world at large that are gravitating towards the use of ecofriendly and renewable power resources. Reportedly, North America has installed a large number of wind turbines and utilized wind energy as a clean source of energy, owing to which it has been speculated that the region would be in need of a storage system that can store the excess energy and provide it to nearby businesses and homes during the times of energy supply shortage.
According to the Clean Technica, the smart and sustainable technologies industry witnessed a veritable marvel when Tesla managed to install the world’s largest energy storage project in South Australia within 100 days of the contract being signed. Tesla is aiming to repeat this feat in Canada.
Sources cite that Tesla launched a pilot project that involves Powerpacks, a grid sized battery, that has been installed at the Elmsdale substation. Ten Powerwalls, which are essentially identified as Tesla Home batteries, have been installed in houses in the community.
Using Powerwall batteries, the residents will be able to utilize clean energy even when the wind turbines are not generating power that they need. Reports further claim that the Powerwalls will also take the load off the grid system when the demand will be higher than that being provided by the clean energy sources.
