Builder company S2A Modular intends to build 35 factories across North America, each of which will be powered by solar energy. To implement the plan, the company will use Tesla Powerpacks--advanced energy storage systems.
California-based builder S2A Modular has plans to open 35 factories in the US and Canada. The first plant, located in Patterson, California, will open this summer. Three more are under construction or permitting in Waco, Texas; Milwaukee, Wisconsin; and Jacksonville, Florida. The company is engaged in the construction of prefabricated houses.

An interesting fact is that the S2A Modular factories themselves, as well as their products, will be prefabricated. The components for their construction are built in an existing Florida plant and assembled on site in less than two months. Each facility is planned to be over 100,000 square feet. All of them will run on solar energy, which will also generate additional income from the sale of excess electricity. For this purpose, Tesla Powerpacks will be installed in all locations.
With the help of Tesla Powerpack, S2A Modular will create its own microgrid, which can be disconnected from the main power grid, operate independently, and increase the overall stability of the grid. Powerpack is a fully integrated, AC-connected energy storage system with everything needed to connect to a building or utility network. It dramatically simplifies installation, integration and future support, offering system-wide benefits that far outweigh those of standalone batteries.
