Tesla deploys new Powerpack system at Manchester Science Park in UK
In a recent press release, Tesla has revealed that it has deployed a new Powerpack energy storage system in the UK. The new 4-Powerpack system has been deployed by Tesla at UK’s Manchester Science Park (MSP), the Bright Building where several businesses and start-ups have their offices. The system has been installed along with a Tesla commercial inverter.
The deployment of the new Powerpack system in the UK is a strong indication of an ongoing effort by Tesla’s energy division to eventually expand the installation of the energy storage system to several markets.
About the latest Powerpack deployment at MSP, Tesla said in the press release that it has installed the energy storage system “with four Powerpacks and one inverter.” Describing this particular system as “a flexible, scalable battery system,” Tesla said that the system is capable of accommodating an addition of up to sixteen more Powerpacks “if the requirements for the building increase on a power and/or energy level.”
Tesla has specified that for the present requirements, the Powerpack system installed at MSP will essentially “insulate MSP from shifting commercial tariffs and escalating non-commodity prices.” Tesla further added the system will also offer a power backup in order to cater for power outages at the park.
