Tesla Powerpack System To Power Nantucket With Green Energy

By Brian Spaen

Tesla will be installing more Powerpack battery backup systems after being greenlit for the Nantucket project. The island off of Massachusetts needs their diesel generator backups replaced as they’re reaching the end. It joins a list of many Powerpack projects that Tesla has been involved with over the years.

Nantucket, which is home to over 10,000 people, is powered by two submarine cables that pushes electricity from a mainland energy system in Cape Cod. They’ve seen continuing increase in demand for electricity, and it’s projected that a third cable is needed by 2030. Should either of these cables go down, there’s two diesel-powered generators that provides backup power to the island.
