Tesla has reached the half-way point in it’s plan to build the world’s biggest battery, in South Australia.
CEO of Tesla, Elon Musk, challenged Australian software entrepreneur, Mike Cannon-Brookes, that Tesla would build a 100MW (129MWh) lithium battery in 100 days.
Musk claimed that if Tesla fails to build the wind-charged battery in 100 days, then the state wouldn’t have to pay for it.
The project grew out of a Twitter bet between Musk and Cannon-Brookes.
The battery has been designed to help cover temporary dips in wind power, say for 15 minutes, or help control frequency on the grid at times when natural gas-fired plants are unable to help balance generation and power demand.
Musk noted that if Tesla missed the deadline, the loss would be about $50 million.
