Tesla : On the way to build biggest battery (half-built)

Tesla is building the biggest battery in the south Australia. They are building 100MW (129MWh) lithium battery. For the same, Tesla paired up with French company Neoen, which will build a wind farm alongside the battery. Battery will be three times larger than any existing power storage facility.

The official countdown to the end of the 100-day deadline commenced on 30 September, after the project was given approval by Australian energy regulators. It is designed to solve the problem of power-cut that regularly happens in region.

All of these started from the twitter conversation between Tesla boss Elon Musk and Australian software entrepreneur Mike Cannon-Brookes. Then Mr. Musks said Tesla would build the wind-charged battery in 100 days or the state would not have to pay for it. Tesla has given itself a good chance of hitting the self-imposed deadline because construction of the battery began long before the clock started counting down.

At last, Mr Musk said that if Tesla missed the deadline it stood to lose about $50m (£38m). Let us see, How soon Tesla finish up this project and give a new gift!
