The world's biggest battery was officially launched in Australia on Friday, a day after the Elon Musk-driven project was powered up early to meet demand amid a bout of hot weather, officials said. Musk's Tesla built the Powerpack system, which can provide electricity for more than 30,000 homes, to ease South Australia's energy woes after the state was hit with a total blackout in 2016 follow
Tesla has activated the world's largest lithium ion battery in Australia. The project took just 60 days to complete, securing a bet Tesla founder Elon Musk made that promised Australia would receive the battery for free if it wasn't finished in 100 days.
