WindCharger is Alberta’s first utility-scale lithium-ion energy storage project and uses the new Tesla Megapack technology. It has a nameplate capacity of 10MW and total storage capacity of 20MWh, charged in approximately two hours. This technology supports fully “behind the fence renewable energy,” powered by TransAlta’s Summerview II wind. Additionally, the project brings great benefits to the grid in terms of fast response time, reactive power capability and frequency deviation response.
