Tesla and PG&E To Build World’s Largest Battery Farm Near Silicon Valley

“Tesla will work with PG&E to build the world’s largest battery facility able to store energy generated by both solar and wind power in Monterey, California,” writes long-time Slashdot reader Okian Warrior.

Clean Technica reports:

“Certainly, combined, this is going to be the largest battery facility in the world, so it’s a big boost to our community and our country,” said Monterey County Supervisor John Phillips. Both projects will utilize hundreds of lithium-ion batteries to store clean and renewable energy. They will also use the existing power lines to transmit the energy around Monterey County and parts of Silicon Valley.

Next month, Tesla and PG&E hope to break ground on their project with hopes that it will be completed by the end of this year.
