Tesla’s giant battery reduces grid service costs by 90 percent

Tesla’s wind-powered system responds faster than the traditional grid back up and reduces the power outage costs by 90 percent.

Usually, when there is a fault in the Australian power grid or maintenance is required, the energy market operator calls the frequency control and ancillary services (FCAS) – a service which consists of costly, fossil fuel-powered backup systems.

The Tesla project, on the other hand, is based on an enormous lithium-ion battery that is capable of providing the same service not only quicker and cheaper but also with zero emissions.

The new Tesla system in South Australia has led to a massive drop in the costs of backing up the region’s power supply, saving millions of dollars or its local people.

According to the new figures presented at Australian Energy Week, the new wind turbine system from Tesla has reduced the price of expensive power outages by 90 percent.
