Tesla has flipped the switch on the world’s biggest lithium ion battery.
This development comes after Elon Musk wins a bet that he could build a huge battery in South Australia in just 100 days. If it were to go past the 100 days, he will foot the bill himself. This gigantic battery all started from a light brag by Tesla, and a Twitter banter back in March. Musk too the wisecrack way too far and said if he does not deliver the world’s biggest lithium-ion in 100 days, he will pay for the full cost of its installation. Yes, Musk would have paid $50 million had he not delivered the said battery in 100 days.
Elon Musk was given 100 days to deliver a battery that is 3x bigger than the current existing batteries. In just 55 days, Tesla has finished making the battery and the 100 MW/129MWh wind- powered power back up system is now ready to supply electricity to 30,000 homes in South Australia . . . . . . . . . . . #Investors #innov8tiv #likesforlikes …read more
