With the wider adoption of energy production from natural energy sources, large energy storage systems have become very popular. Tesla is experiencing tremendous growth in demand for its Megapack by offering the best utility energy storage devices in the industry. A batch of 157 batteries has been spotted at Giga Nevada preparing for delivery.
Those who follow Tesla's work are already accustomed to the fact that there are often hundreds of cars near factories. However, ready-to-ship Megapacks have never been the subject of much scrutiny. Despite this, these are very interesting observations that can show how heavily the manufacturer's factory is busy and that Megapacks are in high demand.
Tesla enthusiast Sawyer Merritt/Twitter shared a photo taken of Giga Nevada. In it, you can see dozens of Megapacks preparing for delivery. Sawyer reported that there are 157 units.

Tesla recently reported that in Q3 the number of energy storage deployments increased by 71% YoY, mainly due to the massive deployment of Megapacks. The manufacturer is experiencing a huge demand for this product and currently has a big backlog. In this regard, Tesla decided to build a new factory that will produce Megapacks. In September, the new MegaFactory broke ground in Lathrop, California. In its Q3 report, the company said the MegaFactory's capacity will be 40 GWh, which is a huge capacity and far exceeds what Tesla can produce now.
"We recently announced our new Megapack factory with a capacity of 40 GWh, which compares to total Megapack deployments of 3 GWh in the last 12 months. We are very excited about the broader potential of this product."
