Tesla says it can fix Australia's power problems in 100 days
Innovative tech giant Tesla says it can fix Australia's power problems in just 100 days.
It believes it powerwall batteries could provide the solution to the energy issues that have recently plagued South Australia, as well as provide back power to the rest of the country.
"If you had storage deployed during the blackout [in] South Australia you wouldn't have had the blackout," said Tesla's Vice-President Lyndon Rive.
Mr Rive said it would cost just $66 million per 100 megawatts to install up to 300 megawatts of grid-scale battery storage.
So long as there was a change in electricity market rules, Tesla could provide this power plan and wouldn't even need a direct subsidy.
