Tesla received an order for its 2 GW/6 GWh Megapack systems from Arevon Energy, which strives to support its growing utility-scale storage portfolio through a master supply agreement. By the end of 2021, Arevon will oversee the construction and operation of 250 MW/1000 MWh battery storage systems with Tesla Megapack deployments at facilities in California and Nevada.
On September 28, Arevon Energy, a leading renewable energy company with roots as one of the largest renewable asset managers in the United States, has entered into an agreement with energy storage system manufacturer, Tesla.
"Arevon is at the forefront of powering the energy transition through solar and storage resources. We are pleased to be working with Tesla, securing a quality product that is in high demand. This agreement ensures that Arevon can deliver near-term storage solutions to our customers, mitigating the risk of supply shortages and project delays," said Justin Johnson, Arevon's chief operating officer.
Tesla Megapack has been selected to support the portfolio of Falcon, a joint venture between Arevon and energy company Tenaska, to develop standalone storage projects in California load centers over the next four years. These facilities can be configured to provide up to four hours of Tesla battery life during peak hours. Well-located, self-contained battery systems increase local reliability and can be used to prevent power outages, Arevon says.
This agreement ensures Arevon will be able to handle the storage resources it plans to deploy over the next few years. It is very important as the demand for energy storage systems continues to grow rapidly and the supply remains relatively low.
