Tesla Back-up Power System Installation Nearing Completion
Tesla is getting close to completing installation of the 1,392-kWh backup power system at the City of Cloverdale’s Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP). The battery system is identified in the picture to the right. PG&E connected a new transformer to support the new battery system this week.
The batteries will provide a source of back up power and offset energy usage charges at the WWTP. Tesla estimates that their battery energy storage system will generate savings to the Wastewater enterprise as follows:
Estimated Annual Electricity Savings:
Estimated Long Term Electricity Savings:
- 10 Year Value - $363,085
- 20 Year Value - $784,045
The project was funded by the California Public Utility Commission (CPUC) Self-Generation Incentive Program (SGIP).
