Dynapower to supply energy storage inverters for Tesla Powerpack

Tesla’s Powerpack systems are designed for large commercial, industrial, and utility-scale applications.

South Burlington, Vermont - July 14, 2015 - Dynapower Company, the global leader in energy storage inverters, announced that it will be supplying the 250 kW energy storage inverters as an integral part of Tesla's recently announced Powerpack Commercial battery systems for large commercial and utility customers.

The Dynapower MPS-250 inverter is a UL-listed, field-proven product with outstanding performance history. Tesla selected the Dynapower system based on the company's technology, track record, and long-term viability.

"Dynapower leads the energy storage inverter market in reliability and efficiency, which together create premium value for our customers. It's this value that has enabled us to deploy a market-defining 200 megawatts of energy storage inverters," said Adam Knudsen, Dynapower President. "For Tesla, we customized the MPS-250's performance characteristics to provide an optimized system for their demanding market requirements. The combination of proven technology, enhanced by design flexibility is what we provide to every Dynapower customer."

Tesla's Powerpack systems are designed for large commercial, industrial, and utility-scale applications. Multiple 100 kWh DC battery blocks are grouped to scale from 500 kWh to 10 MWh+. These systems are capable of 2-hour, 3-hour or 4-hour continuous net discharge power using grid-tied bi-directional inverters, such as the Dynapower MPS systems. Powerpack systems support various storage applications, including peak shaving, load shifting and demand response for commercial customers, while offering renewable energy firming and a variety of other services for utilities.
