Tinuku ~ Tesla Inc. will build the world's largest lithium ion battery in Australia. Elon Musk is in a move to build the world's largest electric powerhouse in 100 days to complete the energy crisis in South Australia. The region suffered a total blackout when a hurricane destroyed an electric transmission tower by 2016. Musk in March has offered to help power the battery.

"This system is three times stronger than all the systems on Earth. I'm very impressed with South Australia who is willing to do this big project beyond anything else in the world, I see as an example of the world," Musk told reporters in the state capital of Adelaide.

Tesla has built the largest battery in the world today. Musk says the 100 megawatt battery in South Australia is enough to power 30,000 homes. Batteries will be built in Jamestown or 230 kilometers (144 miles) north of Adelaide and will be paired with wind power by Neoen from France.

"Tesla has agreed to build batteries within 100 days or free. This will completely change the way renewable energy storage, as well as stabilize the South Australian network as well as reduce prices," said South Australian Prime Minister Jay Weatherill.

The South Australian government says batteries operate all the time and are able to provide additional power during emergencies. The 100-day pledge of Musk will begin after an electrical network interconnection agreement is signed.

No official announcement of money and contract costs. Neoen is a French renewable energy company established in 2008 and has projects worldwide from Zambia to Egypt. The company operates the largest solar energy in Europe to supply the city with a population of 300,000 people.

Musk envisioned Tesla as a company to reduce emissions and not only sell electric cars, but also generate and store renewable energy. Australia is one of the worst per capita greenhouse gas polluters in the world due to the use of coal power.
