Tesla to “Build” 100 Megawatts in 100 Days

In the latest step to single-handedly drag the world kicking and screaming into the future, Elon Musk and his company Tesla have signed on with the country, Australia, to install the world’s largest Powerpack battery storage system to supplement the Hornsdale Wind Farm. The Powerpack installation will be able to supply power to 30,000+ homes during power outages or during peak electricity usage.

What started this project was a massive blackout in Australia that left 1.7 million folks without power. During this crisis, Musk promised to build 100MW in 100 days or the entire battery installation would be free of charge.

How much would it cost Musk if his company fails to fullfill the promise? “Probably $50 million or more” says Musk. That’s quite a gamble, but I’d say it’s worth it to help move the world into the future.
