United Power of Colorado has installed and is now operating a large bank of Tesla power packs to help with peak energy support. Rather than build a gas peaker plant the comes on when demand is up, this 4MW array of Tesla power packs up peak demand in Brighton, Colorado.
Brighton, a modest town of 33,000 people, can now rely on this new power pack capable of powering 700 homes for four (4) hours. Savings from this modest sized array of power packs is estimated to be $1 million annually.
