Tesla undertakes ambitious task of building world’s largest solar storage facility in Kauai

Tesla’s foray into clean energy reached a high point last year when it completed an enormous solar power facility in the island of Ta’u in American Samoa. Fitted with as many as 5,328 photovoltaic panels as well as 60 industrial-scale PowerPack batteries, the 1.4-megawatt installation currently provides nearly 100-percent of the island’s energy. The company’s…

On the theoretical level, fusion, the process that fuels the sun, can provide unlimited clean energy for humanity. However, fusion-based power plants have seemingly been out of range from the realm of practicality, simply because scientists are not aware of many materials that could survive the punishing conditions concocted inside a fusion nuclear reactor. But…
