Tesla has completed the installing of world largest lithium ion battery system in South Australia to help State to overcome electricity and energy problems.
It is 100 MW power unit which is designed to avoid crippling blackouts in State during summer storms which will potentially power up 30,000 homes for eight hours and 60,000 homes for four hours.
The giant battery system from Tesla will be paired with Neoen’s Hornsdale wind farm, located near Jamestown, Adelaide.
The project has the deadline of 100 days, but the TESLA team has delivered the project before time. Now the final testing of the installed system has to be done in accordance with energy standards and regulations of South Australia State Government
South Australia’s Premier Jay Weatherill has made the statement, he will join representatives from Tesla to officially launch the battery power unit, which “has put South Australia and Jamestown on the map as a world leader in renewable energy with battery storage.”
He also quoted that “The world’s largest lithium ion battery will be an important part of our energy mix, and it sends the clearest message that South Australia will be a leader renewable energy with battery storage”.
Earlier, in March Elon Musk made a bet on Twitter that he can install 100 MW lithium ion power facility with 100 days else it would be free. The contract was signed in September and he delivered the project within 100 days and kept his promise.
