The storage of energy in large containers is real from Tesla, where the company introduced a technology known as Megapack, a container-size battery designed for large-scale energy storage, “which can help spread renewable energy quickly and even replace conventional power plants.

According to the Verge, each individual megapack contains up to 3 megawatts of storage capacity, which in turn leads to a very rapid deployment of energy. Tesla claims that it can deploy a 250 megawatt, 1 gigawatt power plant in less than three months , or four times the speed of a similar fossil fuel station.

The batteries can be connected directly to solar energy, while the technology will be used as an alternative to natural gas energy in the Moss Landing project in California. This can not only avoid the need for dirty energy, but saving the tool from spending “millions of dollars” every day to maintain peak operation.

The company says this will be enough to operate “every six-hour San Francisco home” and Tesla will deliver fully-assembled Megapack, including “battery modules, two-way transformers, a thermal management system, and the main AC cutter. Tesla says Megapack occupies less space by 40%, require ten parts to be created, and can be assembled 10 times the speed of alternative energy storage solutions.
