Edify Energy has announced it will use Tesla Megapacks for three upcoming energy storage project in New South Wales, Australia.
The Australian solar and battery storage developer said the Megapacks will make up three independent projects and provide a combined 150MW/300MWg of energy storage when complete.
The projects are:
- Riverina Energy Storage System 1 (60MW/120MWh)
- Riverina Energy Storage System 2 (65MW/130MWh)
- Darlington Point Energy Storage System (25MW/50MWh)
The projects will be located near the 275MW Darling Point solar farm and be fitted with what Edify says is “advanced inverter technology” which will help support the grip operate with 100% renewable energy.
“Without a doubt, as the understanding of advanced inverters grows, we will see more smart technologies replacing rotating machines and accelerating Australia’s transition to a clean energy future. Working with Tesla to deliver this important and innovative piece of infrastructure to the people and businesses of NSW is another milestone for Edify in this exciting energy transition,” said Edify’s Chief Executive, John Cole.
Edify is partnering with Shell Energy on the project, which recently won a long-term government contract to provide electricity to hospitals, schools, and government buildings.
