Tesla's Giant Battery Now Delivering Power To South Australia

Wow, that was pretty damn quick! I guess Elon Musk didn't want to make good on that "100 days or its free" promise.

The world's largest lithium-ion battery is now live in South Australia after being delivered a few weeks ago, easily beating the promise Elon Musk made of "100 days or it's free." The South Australian Government notes that for the first time, clean wind energy can be siphoned to the grid 24/7 improving the system’s reliability, whether the wind is blowing or not. The 100MW battery farm has enough storage capacity to power more than 30,000 homes.
