Tesla PowerPack, saving money, Making Wine

Tesla batteries pair well with wine-making - MarketWatch
"Jackson Family Wines now has 21 of Tesla’s batteries in six of its wineries in northern and central California. Together, the batteries provide 4.2 megawatts of storage capacity, and the winery uses the batteries mostly in two ways: to shift loads, or switching to the batteries when using power during the most expensive part of the day, and to smooth out its demand peaks... The winery estimates its portion of the savings will be about $200,000 a year."
"Elon Musk called demand for the batteries “crazy off the hook” and said they are essentially sold out through mid-2016."
