Tesla can fix woes in 100 days, says Musk

New Straits Times - - Business World -

Bil­lion­aire Elon Musk bets he can solve a loom­ing en­ergy cri­sis in Aus­tralia within 100 days by de­ploy­ing Tesla Inc tech­nol­ogy to plug a sup­ply gap which has caused power black­outs.

In a con­ver­sa­tion on Twit­ter with tech bil­lion­aire Mike Can­non-Brookes, Musk backed up an ear­lier com­mit­ment Tesla made on Thurs­day to de­ploy its Pow­er­wall and Pow­er­pack prod­ucts to sup­ply up to 100 megawatt hours of power.

“Tesla will get the sys­tem in­stalled and work­ing 100 days from con­tract sig­na­ture or it is free,” Musk wrote on Twit­ter.

A later tweet from Musk said Tesla could sup­ply the sys­tem at US$250 (RM1,115) per kilo­watt hour, pric­ing the project at US$25 mil­lion.
