Tesla Completes Largest Battery in the World for Australian Farm

Tesla CEO, Elon Musk recently completed the installation of the largest lithium ion battery, well ahead of the deadline of 100 days.

South Australian authorities confirmed the completion of Tesla Powerpacks and its successful integration into Hornsdale Wind Farm. The authorities noted further that the battery will be energized over the next few days. Neoen, the French renewable energy firm, operates the windfarm, which is located to the north of Jamestown.

The contract was awarded to Tesla and Neoen in July and Musk committed to deliver the battery within 100 days of signing the grid integration agreement.

Tweeting about the milestone, Musk congratulated the Tesla staff and the authorities from South Australia, who put in extremely hard work in the manufacturing and installation of the battery in record time.

As a next step, testing the battery will ensure that it is optimized according to the requirements of the South Australian Government and Australian Energy Market Operator. Early this year, authorities rolled out a plan to deliver clean, inexpensive, and reliable energy to residents of South Australia. As part of the plan, they also thought of developing a large battery that will store renewable energy and provide back up power when required.

Speaking on the occasion, the premier of South Australia, Jay Weatherhill said, “While others are just talking, we are delivering our energy plan, making South Australia more self-sufficient, and providing back-up power and more affordable energy for South Australians this summer.” He added, “The world’s largest lithium ion battery will be an important part of our energy mix, and it sends the clearest message that South Australia will be a leader renewable energy with battery storage.”
