4675 MacArthur has nearly completed its Tesla battery storage installations in partnership with Advanced Microgrid Solutions and 4695 MacArthur is expected to begin in late summer 2017!
Once complete, the “hybrid-electric” buildings will pull power from the grid when it is least expensive and, as demand peaks, draw from the energy stored in the batteries. The system works by pushing stored power into the buildings where the batteries are installed. Tesla’s PowerPack batteries use the same technology the company uses for its electric cars.
Systems at 4675 MacArthur are expected to be at full capacity this summer relieving pressure on the grid and keeping MacArthur Court Green!
