Switch’s Gigawatt solar farms to use Tesla Megapack batteries – DatacenterDynamics

Data center company Switch and asset management firm Capital Dynamics broke ground on three solar energy and battery projects this week.

Together, along with an existing development, the solar farms will generate 555MW and have 800MW hours of battery storage.

Known as ‘Gigawatt 1,’ the developments will use panels from First Solar, Tesla Megapack batteries, and be integrated by Con Edison Clean Energy Businesses.

Capital Dynamics affiliate Arevon will handle energy shaping, development, construction, asset management & operations of all four projects.
