Hydrofluoric Acid Fire
Tesla Battery Energy Storage System
July 30, 2021
Note The reason I urge you to watch this Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) go up in smoke is because all solar and, now, wind energy plants around the world have these batteries installed onsite. The problem is the lithium-ion batteries: when they burn, they produce hydrogen fluoride gas, that is, hydrofluoric acid. If you're a fireman or live downwind, you're in trouble. (Now that you have read this note, click the X in the upper right corner and, poof, it will disappear.

It’s the smoke you want to be concerned about. It contains hydrofluoric acid from the combusted lithium hexafluorophosphate in the lithium-ion batteries. You can read about this, as well, by clicking here.
