Tesla Powerpacks Power Microgrid For Okracoke Island

Islands present special challenges for utility companies, whether they are large like the Hawaiian Islands or small like Okracoke, a tiny spit of land that juts out into the Atlantic Ocean east of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina. They are also ideal for a microgrid — an electrical system that can generate, store, and distribute power even if it is disconnected from the central grid.
