Tesla and Electrify America, VW’s electric vehicle charging network, announced that they reached a deal for the former to deploy Powerpacks at over 100 charging stations operated by the latter.

Demand charges, a higher rate that an electric utility charges when a user’s electricity needs spike, are resulting in incredible costs for charging station operators.

The use of energy storage at charging stations in order to shave the peak usage is a solution to those demand charges.

Tesla has been exploring the solutions for years and Elon Musk has been talking about accelerating energy storage deployment at Superchargers when they are going to introduce a new version in the coming months.

But Electrify America is not waiting.
