During the quarterly earnings call Elon Musk let slip something interesting which is mentioned in that article:-

And earlier this month, Tesla CEO and chief visionary Elon Musk let slip about a soon-to-be announced new big battery project that would dwarf the SA installation.

Musk said the new project would be announced within a few months he did not say where it will be installed and that at 1GWh it would would be eight times bigger than Hornsdale.

I've seen several suggestion/rumours as to where this 1GWh batt might go:

1. Part of the massive Saudi PV rollout.
2. Part of the US utility Xcel Energy's auction for Re and storage in 2023 that attracted incredibly low prices and in which Tesla bid.
3. Part of the rebuilding of Puerto Rico, which has significant funding for the new leccy infrastructure and with loads of sunshine and wind would make an ideal location for a RE + storage grid.

Guess we'll have to wait and see.

Just call me Mart.     Cardiff: 5.58kWp PV - (3.58kWp SE3500 + 2kWp SE2200 WNW)
