Elon Musk makes a bet to fix a state's energy woes in 100 days, or it's free

March 10, 2017View for printing

Yesterday, Tesla's Vice President for energy products Lyndon Rive (who is Musk's cousin) said the company could build enough battery storage capacity with its Powerwall 2, to solve lingering energy supply concerns in the state of South Australia, within 100 days. So modest.

It was an idea enthusiastically taken aboard by Atlassian co-founder Mike Cannon-Brookes, who offered to help find the cash on Twitter Thursday. That is, if Tesla could deliver on their ambitious claim.
