The 7 MW / 34 MWh network will utilize Tesla batteries, installed at 11 of IRWD's largest and most energy-intensive facilities – including three water treatment and recycling plants, a deep aquifer treatment system, a groundwater desalter facility and six high-energy pumping stations – as part of a major grid modernization project for Southern California Edison (SCE). The energy storage systems will be linked together as a network providing IRWD facility managers real time visibility and operational flexibility in responding to utility requests for demand reduction.
