The pilot is intended to test how energy storage can be used to diversify the utility's energy mix at a time when calls for the decarbonisation of the energy sector are increasing. By using energy storage, utilities are able to expand their portfolio of renewables and thereby move away from fossil-fueled energy generation, the release notes.

RE Royalties will receive a 5 pct royalty on all gross revenues received by the Operating Projects for the life of the Energy Services Agreements which have initial terms of 10-12-years with options to extend.
The Operating Projects are adjacent to commercial buildings owned by large property managers or REITs and utilize battery technologies from Tesla and Sungrow to significantly reduce their electricity costs by supplying power during periods of peak demand.

"If we just put a price on carbon emissions, the market will react in a sensible way. But because we don]t have a price on it, it is behaving badly.
It's either we have sustainable energy or civilization collapses. And so if civilization doesn't collapse we will have sustainable energy, it's just a question of how soon does that happen. Sooner is better." -- Elon Musk, Feb., 2021)

The 300-MW Victorian Big Battery using Tesla's Megapack technology
will be double the size of Neoen's Hornsdale site in South Australia, which was the largest facility when it began operation in 2017. The new system will help modernize and stabilize the coal-dependent local grid, which is targeting 50 pct of its power to come from renewable sources by 2030. The new battery is expected to be operational by the end of 2021.

For the project, WCSB has procured three Tesla Megapack Batteries, the first of which will be connected to the grid in Rycroft where it will
store and distribute renewable energy as needed. The Megapack can also be used as a microgrid if disconnected from the main power grid.
In addition to the Rycrft installation, WCSB plans to install 20 MW Megapack's in Grande Prairie and Buffalo Creek, both of which are expected to be completed in 2021. (Source: WCSB, PR, Oct., 2020) Contact: WCSB, (587) 747-4050, www.wcsbpower.com

Tesla's proposal would install a 1,624 kWh battery at the wastewater treatment plant at no cost to the city. This battery would have an average duration of 4.5 hours with a fully charged period of 9 hours in the case of a power outage.
The project would qualify for California Public Utilities Commission Equity Resilience Self-Generation Incentive Program rebates for installing energy storage technology for both residential and non-residential facilities.
