Elon Musk Finishes World’s Biggest Battery In Less Than 100 Days…

Elon Musk Finishes World’s Biggest Battery In Less Than 100 Days...

In March 2017, the State Government announced its Energy Plan, with the objective of delivering cleaner, more affordable and more reliable energy to South Australians. This plan included building the nation’s largest battery, to store renewable energy and have back up power for when needed.

In July, following a competitive process, French renewable energy company Neoen and US sustainable energy company Tesla, were awarded the contract to deliver the project, which would be the world’s largest lithium ion battery and installed near Jamestown.

Now South Australia is set to have back-up power in place this summer through the world’s largest lithium ion battery, which is set to be energised for the first time in the coming days as it enters a phase of regulatory testing.



Tesla Powerpacks, connected to Neoen’s Hornsdale windfarm, have now been fully installed on site, with the testing phase ensuring the battery is optimised and meets AEMO and South Australian Government requirements. Throughout this testing period, the battery will be providing system security services to South Australia…

Premier Jay Weatherill will join representatives from Neoen, Tesla and Consolidated Power Projects next week to officially launch the battery, which has put South Australia and Jamestown on the map as a world leader in renewable energy with battery storage.

As Premier Jay Weatherill put its…

While others are just talking, we are delivering our energy plan, making South Australia more self-sufficient, and providing back up power and more affordable energy for South Australians this summer.

The world’s largest lithium ion battery will be an important part of our energy mix, and it sends the clearest message that South Australia will be a leader renewable energy with battery storage.

An enormous amount of work has gone in to delivering this project in such a short time, and I look forward to visiting Jamestown next week to personally thank those who have worked on this project.

Boooo! Horrible man ruining an awesome mans name by adding a price tag, should be put down like the rest of the greed mongers!

    You think people should be murdered for putting themselves first?

    I think ppl using designs from a man that was making free energy and wifi for the world and profiting off of it should be wiped off the planet for sure

    If you don’t like the fact that it was made to better the human race then you shouldn’t use the tech, give it to someone who will actually achieve Tesla’s dreams and not do exactly what he didn’t want to happen

    Nicola didn’t design the Lithium battery . Are you high ?

    Reply

    Maybe so but Elon musk started off with getting Tesla’s designs and then selling it which isn’t right not to mention to use the name Tesla, huge insult to the great mind

    Reply

    Eileen MacKenzie Edison sole Telsa’s designs not Elon Musk. Nikola Telsa didn’t have access to Internet so he didn’t invent wifi. He wanted to make power free which is true but Elon Musk is about helping people reach the goal of having power be free with his solar roof and power wall. So do you know what you are talking about in actuality? Because energy needs to be generated from somewhere and Telsa’s original telsa coil technology and other ideas to do so limitlessly was lost.

    You idiot he didn’t get any designs that weren’t public accessible. Lol ? and he didn’t sell anything . He just started a revolutionary electronics company with a brilliant name to match .
    Why are you so butt hurt over nothing

    Reply

    I’m mad cause using his name for profit is an insult to a mind that wanted to better the human race without the price tag now when ppl say Tesla they think of this tool Elon and not the truely awesome mind of Tesla himself and it’s so sad cause we are all about $ instead of what men like Tesla stood for

    It’s not about being an idiot or whatever other name you can come up with, it’s about having a different perspective, and greed is the human races down fall so cut it out like a tumor

    You sure have issues . Elon was a multi millionaire before he started with Tesla . The fact he builds off grid power systems and electric cars and trucks to free people from grid tie is enough to show he is a great man . Let’s not even bother with his space exploration .
    Elon has done and will do more for mankind then Tesla ever did . And he sure won’t die poor

    Reply

    Let me guess . You drive a petrol car and your electricity comes from the grid ? Elon could help you there

    Reply

    If he was truely making a difference then he would have abolished our currently way of doing things but he’s not… he’s charging ppl up the ass for his products, that’s not bettering man kind that’s hindering it from growing

    Reply

    Of course he sells his products . That’s how you run a Business . You wouldn’t be in business long if you have stuff away .
    You sure do have a few screws loose

    Reply

    And it comes back to if he wants to use a great mans name for the face of his products then he should use a name that didn’t want to better the human race for zero dollars

So the lithium mines made a fortune tesla made a fortune and the SA people have big arse battery that will run one medium sized town for 3hrs.

Reply

    Better than letting coal mine made a fortune, and brighter future for the next generation

    Reply

    Ou Ye you really are stupid aren’t you

    Reply

    So it will run the state for 5 minutes

    Reply

    Two and a half minutes by my count, as SA has 675 thousand households, and they claim it will power 30,000 for an hour. It’s hard to tell though, since all the stupid news stories quote it as a hundred megawatt battery, but don’t say how many megawatt-hours it holds. South Australia’s peak demand is about 2,300 MW in winter and 3,000 in summer. So if you’re relying on wind and batteries, no gas or coal, and you have a week of calm, you’ll need a hell of a lot more of the world’s largest batteries. Plus they don’t usually last too long if you discharge them right down all the time.

Estimated to have cost 50 million at least. And how long is the warranty period?

Brilliant! and he repowered a children’s hospital in Puerto Rico during that time period too? K

Seriously… is this an Ecosnippet? A businessman using more fossil fuels than anyone with his grand plans for Mars, burning off millions and billions worth of natural resources in their testing for his various narcissistic projects. I’ll tell you what, by the time he’s done, we’d better hope Mars is habitable.

bet he still looses the remote like the rest of us

Elon musk is no great who is fooling the world with his evil intentions like Rockefellers to exploit Earth’s natural resources in an ave to believe the world he is changing the future

Reply

Why does Ecosnippets hold this twat in such high regard? Dig a little and you will find this guy out… He is a self serving fraud! Like Spacex!

he’s just another business man trying to make as much money as he can

Keep up the good work Elon.
