Oakland, CA – 12/7/2023
Rubicon Professional Services, an expert provider of General Contractor and EPC services for the Alternative Energy and Critical Infrastructure sectors, is pleased to announce the completion of their first project for Tesla, Inc – a 357 kW BESS (Battery Energy Storage System) at the East Valley Water District in Highland, CA.
California’s rapidly evolving energy landscape and aggressive carbon reduction goals are increasing the need for alternative energy sources, and the infrastructure to best utilize them. Coupled with the instability of the energy grid across the country and the high price of transmission and distribution, and on-site storage brings a level of resiliency and cost control to forward thinking customers.
The future of renewable energy relies on large-scale energy storage. Tesla Megapack is a powerful battery system that provides energy storage and support, helping to stabilize the grid and prevent outages. By strengthening sustainable energy infrastructure, Tesla creates a cleaner grid that protects businesses, communities and the environment. Megapack stores energy for the grid reliably and safely, eliminating the need for gas peaker plants and helping to avoid outages. Each unit can store over 3 MWh of energy—that’s enough energy to power an average of 3,600 homes for one hour. Find out more at www.tesla.com/megapack

Our customers are the cornerstone of our success, and we are excited to build upon this new relationship with Tesla,” says Abbot Moffat, Director of Business Development | West for RPS.
