Tesla‘s CEO Elon Musk bet that he could create world’s biggest battery in under 100 days, to help South Australia with its energy problems.
Now, local authorities will have to pay $50 million for the giant battery because Tesla fulfilled its promise and completed the project in under 100 days.
According to Business Insider, Tesla’s 100 megawatt Powerpack is the largest lithium-ion battery in the world.
State Premier Jay Weatherill said:
“South Australia is set to have backup power in place this summer through the world’s largest lithium-ion battery, which is set to be energized for the first time in the coming days as it enters a phase of regulatory testing.”
