Tesla To Build World's Largest Battery To Solve Australia's Energy Crisis

By

It’s been a tremendous end of the week for Tesla. They expected to complete their first Model 3 vehicle on Friday, and just a few hours before the day began, they announced a major project they’ll be involved with down in South Australia. They’ll be installing one of their Powerpacks to fuel electricity in an area dealing with devastation.

Reported as a “bi-annual storm,” the state suffered from continuous lightning strikes and damaged multiple electrical lines. This caused a massive blackout that affected nearly all of South Australia -- everything except Kangaroo Island, which had backups in case an event like this happened. Some areas are still using temporary solutions as repairs are continuing to be made.
