Tesla installs a giant 129 MWh battery in Australia in less than 100 days

Tesla , the North American company of electrical components ( Tesla, Inc ), has installed a powerful battery of 129 MWh, super giant, in South Australia, in the stipulated time, less than two months, thus fulfilling its contract efficiently and responsable.

Failing the commitment would have cost Tesla 50 million dollars, but the company, doing all its coordinated effort, managed to finish before the one hundred days initially wagered. The battery, which has a storage capacity of 129 MWh, was built in South Australia as a way to safeguard or alternative security, in the event of a blackout similar to the one that was generated in September of last year.

This installation has been made in order to accumulate excess energy produced by the current facility in Hornsdale , near Jamestown, also in southern Australia. It is the largest lithium battery on the planet, and is already installed in Australia, which will generate 100 megawatts to cover the needs of 30,000 homes

The idea emerged in March of this year, in an exchange of tweets between Elon Musk , founder of the company Tesla (among others) and specialized in renewable energies,   and the Australian billionaire Mike Cannon-Brookes . Tesla won the public tender in July, signed the contract on September 29 and now announced the completion of the installation successfully.

"What is the point of having a station that generates renewable energy if it is not stored? Beyond the instantaneous consumption, you must have a battery system that is trained to save all that energy, which will offer a lot of stability in case of any emergency, "said Musk.

This giant battery represents a parallel bet from Tesla that, in addition to electric cars, is diversifying its offer. The batteries can be used by domestic customers or companies as an alternative energy storage.
