Tesla’s batteries to power two dozen Calif. office buildings
Developer expects to save $1M a year in energy costs
A California real estate development company plans to install Tesla batteries in up to two dozen of its highest profile offices in the Los Angeles area.
In all, the batteries are expected to supplement power for about 7 million square feet of office space.
The Powerpack systems being installed in The Irvine Company commercial buildings will take up the equivalent of about five parking spaces; the batteries will be charged during nonpeak hours and used, when needed, at peak daytime hours or in the event of a power failure.
