Tesla, the company of Elon Musk, has won a tender for the construction of the world's largest lithium-ion battery in Australia, Rambler News reports on Friday.
In accordance with the agreement, Tesla should supply the battery for 100 MW within 100 days after signing the contract. If the company fails to do so in the allotted time, the battery for Australia will be free of charge.
The battery will be a backup source of electricity for the state of South Australia. The device is designed to provide electricity to 30,000 houses in case of a blackout, and is planned to be built at a wind farm operated by the French Neoen.
