Tesla's utility-sized Megapack battery may debut in California

Tesla chief Elon Musk once dropped a hint about a "large product on the stationary storage side" in an interview, and some clues found online showed that the company is calling that product the "Megapack." Now, Electrek has obtained a copy of Tesla's proposal for PG&E's Moss Landing energy storage site, which gives us a more concrete idea of what the Megapack actually is. Based on the documents, Tesla plans to use its new power storage product for large-scale projects instead of the Powerpack. The illustrations in the documents show that Tesla plans to install two container-sized Megapack units back-to-back.
