Advanced Microgrid Solutions (AMS) has selected Tesla as the primary technology provider for its utility-scale energy storage projects. AMS will install up to 500 MWh of Tesla batteries in its energy storage projects. AMS has also signed a master agreement with Black & Veatch for engineering and construction services.
AMS will install and operate Tesla’s Powerpack energy storage systems in commercial and industrial facilities to provide grid support to utilities using customer load.
Last fall, AMS secured 50 MWs of contracts to build grid-scale energy storage projects for Southern California Edison, including the creation of the first fleet of Hybrid-Electric Buildings in which customer loads will be used as a virtual power plant by the utility. AMS’ first 10 MW Hybrid-Electric Building Project will be installed in Irvine, California in 2016.
AMS will also sign battery supply agreements with additional technology providers.
