Tesla Megapack energy storage on fire. This is another such case


Megapack, a battery the size of a Tesla container that, among others, had been operating for 6 months in a small power station in California, caught fire the day before yesterday early morning.

According to local media, the fire department in northern Monterey County received a report of a Tesla Megapack battery on fire at the Elkhorn Battery Park substation, a 182.5 MW Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E) facility operated by Tesla and to work since April this year. According to fire chief Joel Mendoza, the battery burned quickly and cleanly, which is rare for such fires. “The norm with these batteries is that sometimes they burn for days. In this case, it burned very quickly, within six hours or more,” Mendoza said. However, the battery will emit smoke for several days.

Tesla’s energy storage, which was located near a small California power station, caught fire. This is another Megapack Tesla fire.

Firefighters allowed the Megapack to shut down, which is standard practice for lithium-ion batteries. Utilities stayed on site overnight to make sure the system didn’t shut down again and start another fire. Tesla did not comment on the incident, but this is not the first time. A megapack installed in Australia exploded last year and burned for four days. Batteries at high temperatures can cause a chemical reaction and cause a large burst of energy known as thermal runaway.

The installation of lithium-ion batteries is a serious fire hazard. Some even include 256 Tesla Megapack battery packs, each the size of a shipping container. At the same location in California, there is also a Vistra battery complex, which is said to be the largest in the world. Due to the fire, the center was out of use for several months and was reopened in July this year.
