"Gemtek director Florian Popp said the mass-charging drew more than half a megawatt from the grid."

Wow, that's 8kW per car. So, most Teslas on-site configured for high power?

I wonder what public comments on this event, "Oh, look, EV going to bring our grid down" :roll:

There were (at least) 5 Teslas charging @ 32A 3phase, 6 @ 24A 3phase and 23 @ 16A 3phase

And the voltage was a steady 250V so just those cars alone drew 504kW

The grid barely noticed. The local feeder for the block saw a slight rise, form about 40% capacity to 60% capacity :D Yeah, Western Power have plenty of juice.
