Florida Storage Project to Demonstrate 250-kW/1-MWh Tesla Powerpack

Atlanta-based utility Southern Company and its Gulf Power subsidiary last week said it has launched an energy storage research project in Pensacola, Fla., at the Douglas L. McCrary Training and Storm Center.

The project will test and evaluate a 250-kW/1-MW Tesla Powerpack lithium-ion industrial energy storage system over a two-year period. The utility said that the project will demonstrate the requirements of an energy storage system for industrial and commercial customers.

Southern Company and Gulf Power developed the McCrary battery energy storage demonstration project in collaboration with the Electric Power Research Institute’s Integrated Grid Initiative and Tesla.
