Making the promise on Twitter to alleviate the energy problems of South Australia, Elon Musk’s company Tesla has announced that “It will build the world biggest lithium-ion battery for 100 days, as many of the entrepreneur were talking about.”
Last year, the region was struck by the complete power cut-off when an “unprecedented” storm destroyed the power transmission towers.

In March, Musk promised to offer them to help with the battery farm.
While talking with reporters in the capital of the state of Adelaide, Musk told that “This system will be three times more powerful than any system on the Earth.”
In December last year, Tesla built the fastest battery in the world which was presented at California. Musk said that “Adding to the South Australian, Tesla will provide 100 MW/129 MWh Powerpack system, which is far enough to power 30,000 houses.”

“This is not a secondary foray into the border… I’m pretty impressed with the South Australia wanting to do a project like this on such a high magnitude that surpasses everything else in the world,” He added.
South Australian Premier Jay Weatherill said that “The is battery will develop in Jamestown, 230 kilometers (143 miles) north of Adelaide and is headed with a nearby wind farm from Neoen, a French renewable energy company.”
He also added that “Tesla has agreed to supply the battery “within 100 days or it’s free.”
No details were given for the costs of the contract.
