Instead, it’s composed of hundreds of connected, modular Tesla Powerpacks, built at Tesla’s factory in Sparks, Nevada, which stand 7 feet (2.1 meters) tall and weigh 3,575 pounds (1,622 kilograms) each. The Powerpacks contain smaller battery pods, based upon the same technology used in Tesla’s Model S electric car, as well as a thermal control system and hundreds of sensors that monitor performance, according to Tesla’s website.
