Tesla's Calif. Megapack Battery Megafactory Underway (Ind. Report)
Tesla reports it has broken ground on a new Megafactory to produce Megapack stationary energy storage batteries for Powerwall, Powerpacks and Megapacks in Lathrop, California.
The 3 MWh Megapack battery systems is Tesla's third stationary energy storage product after the Powerwall and Powerpack.
A single Megapack unit is container-size with integrated modules, inverters, and thermal systems and 60 pct more energy-dense the Tesla Powerpack, according to Tesla. (Source: Tesla, PR, 22 Sept., 2021)Contact: Tesla Powerwall, www.tesla.com/en_CA/powerwall
