Hawaiian Island First Solar And Battery Project

The 55,000 solar powered portable generator panels that are still installed are not yet converting sunlight into electricity, but there are other surprising things going on in the mid-November morning project. The solar energy company SolarCity, located in the solar energy region, is being acquired by the energy company Tesla and is installing the first of a series of batteries provided by a solar power station.
When the project is completed early next year, the battery will store the sun's energy during the day so that it can be used at night when local utility companies, Kauai Utilities, usually start turning on fossil-fueled generators. When the farm was opened, it would be the first utility to use large Tesla batteries, and it would also be one of the first utility systems to use solar energy and batteries to replace hungry generators.
Although the island's population is relatively small (utilities only have 33,000 members), the solar and battery projects are a glimpse of the future, and energy companies combine clean energy and energy storage to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and, in some cases, reduce energy costs. In addition, the project demonstrated the vision of Tesla TSLA, a technology manufacturer of electric vehicles and batteries, working closely with SolarCity SCTY to build solar power generator and batteries by the billionaire Elon Musk, Tesla CEO and two companies The chairman of the board.
The companies will hold a shareholder vote on Thursday afternoon, which will determine whether the two companies will be merged into one. The day before the key meeting, SolarCity and the practical Kauai Island Cooperative (KIUC) demonstrated "Fortune" on the project, the first of a media entity.
