Tesla cranks up big battery in Australia

Elon Musk Won $50M for Constructing Lithium Ion Battery in 100 Days

Tesla said it will be able to power more than 30,000 homes, approximately equal to the amount of homes that lost power during the blackout period. In September, the Tesla founder even promised that the task would be complete within "100 days from contract signature or it's free".

Tesla said this week that its electric trucks will hit the market at a starting price of $150,000. The event occurred simultaneously with the signing of an interlink agreement, now accepted by AEMO and just signed by Electranet. Turnbull clearly has an agenda and is a big fan of the oxymoronic "clean coal". In April, another expert told Levine that a 500-mile truck might only need 500 kWh of battery capacity, and that batteries could cost as little as $120 per kWh, making the total cost of the battery around $70,000.

The 100-megawatt battery array has been installed alongside French company Neoen's Hornsdale windfarm near Jamestown and has been designed to "provide security to the state's electricity grid".

The Li-ion battery, which comprises of Tesla Powerpacks, would take a few days to get charged by taking power from the nearby Hoarnsdale windfarm operated by Neoen.

Tesla just released a video showing the car in all its fast and furious glory. Elon musk kept good on his promise by delivering before the deadline, but to be honest, according to the Mashable report Musk was already half-way done before taking up the 100-day challenge (Well played Elon!). That's when excess demand would otherwise result in blackouts. Reservations are being entertained for $50,000 towards the $200,000 base price, or be different and get one of the first 1,000 Founders Series models with more performance and an asking price of $250,000 that has to be paid upfront. Musk also supplied battery power to assist Puerto Rico's electrical grid after the hurricane earlier this year. Trust me, I'm actually from South Australia. Manufacturers have seen the merit in the "Win on Sunday, Sell on Monday" marketing formula; recent studies back up those beliefs.
