Tesla Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) deployed 2.1 GWh of energy storage in the third quarter of 2022, up 62% from a year ago and its highest level ever, the electric vehicle (EV) maker’s third quarter figures showed last week.
The company said that this achievement came despite semiconductor challenges continuing to have a more pronounced impact on its energy business than on its automotive business. Demand continues to exceed the supply potential of Tesla, which is in a process of ramping up production at its 40-GWh Megapack factory in California.

Solar deployments rose year-over-year, albeit at a slower rate of 13%, reaching 94 MW in the third quarter, which, the company said, is one of its strongest in recent years. Deployments were driven by continued growth in residential projects, while volatile commercial projects were lower than a year ago.
