Tesla’s Largest Battery Project on Track: Musk
Elon Musk has announced that the Tesla project to build the largest battery system in Australia is on track. Musk recently went to Australia to check the latest happenings with the project team and announced that the team is confident about completing the project within 100 day deadline. Musk had earlier announced that Tesla would finish the project within 100 days or would offer money-back. Musk added that half of the planned capacity for the project is already on site.
Last year, 1.7 million people were left without electricity in South Australia. The outage was caused by highly sensitive protection mechanisms at some of the wind energy farms in South Australia. The issue was also caused due to inadequate energy storage facility. The government signed a contract with Tesla for setting up a powerful battery to save energy.
Tesla’s 100 MW/129 MWh Powerpack battery system will store energy from wind farms operated by energy provider Neoen.
The demand during summer picks up in South Australia. South Australia’s Energy Minister Tom Koutsantonis confirmed that the project is on track and within two months, they are expecting to turn on the largest battery system powered by Tesla. The battery backed system will have the capacity to provide power to 30,000 homes in the region.
