Elon Musk's, Tesla big battery in South Australia, didn’t need
. . . 100 days after obtaining a connection agreement to switch on, in fact, it took him less than
. . .100 minutes.
That’s how quickly the battery was up, and running,
. . . after the ink dried on the connection deal,
. . . with the state’s transmission company ElectraNet.
By the early evening, some
. . . 300 Tesla Powerpacks already in place were delivering
. . . all the power for the unveiling event,
. . . stored from the adjoining Hornsdale wind farm, a
. . . 3-hour drive north of Adelaide.
Of course, it’s not all in place yet.
. . . About 1/2 is installed.
“So much has been done in an incredibly short period of time,”
. . . Musk said at the unveiling on Friday night.
“Talk is cheap, action is difficult
. . . but this it is not just talk, this is reality.”
And, Musk noted,
. . . ominously enough for the fossil fuel interests looking on from afar,
. . . this is just the start of what he expects,
. . . will be a rapid transition to renewables.
Satellites were powered by solar and batteries for decades, and
. . . Earth was just another satellite of the sun.
. . . So, why not?
