corsairs new supercharger system, which is powered by three massive solar arrays, is designed to reach an energy density of more than 12 gigawatts.
The system is expected to deliver 1,300 megawatts of energy at a rate of about 2.6 kilowatts per second.
The new supercharging network will be installed on the west coast of the U.S. as part of a nationwide network of solar arrays known as the “Geotechnics West.”
The network will cover an area about the size of Connecticut and will provide a much greater range of power to homes and businesses than the Tesla superchargers that are currently operating in Florida and Arizona.
Corsairs announcement came less than a week after Tesla announced it was moving its manufacturing operations to Mexico and closing its factory in Fremont, California.
The company said it would be laying off about 6,000 workers at its Fremont factory and has announced plans to build a $1.9 billion factory in Austin, Texas.
