Tesla to supply batteries to 100MW energy storage facility in California

Once fully operational, the facility will supply on-demand energy to as many as 80,000 homes and businesses

UK-based renewable energy firm Strata Solar has chosen Tesla to provide the batteries for the 100MW/400MWh Ventura Energy Storage (VES) facility in California.

Strata Solar will begin construction on the project in July 2020 - said to be one of US’s largest battery energy storage projects, it will help the region transition away from relying on natural gas as its primary energy source.

The facility is expected to supply on-demand energy to as many as 80,000 homes and businesses in California, in addition to generating more than $3 million (£2.4m).
