Elon Musk Offers to Fix Energy Problems in Australia Free of Charge

Elon Musk Offers to Fix Energy Problems in Australia Free of Charge

Rive also said that the work to install them could be completed within a period of 100 days.

In a Twitter exchange with Australian billionaire Mike Cannon-Brookes, the CEO of silicon valley start-up Atlassian, Musk assured he was serious following a previous vow from a Tesla executive (via Guardian).

Thursday night, in a short back-and-forth on Twitter with Australian software billionaire Mike Cannon-Brookes, Musk confirmed the company's offer was honest, writing, "Tesla will get the system installed and working 100 days from contract signature or it is free".

"Holy s#%t", he tweeted, then appealed to Elon Musk directly: "Lyndon & @elonmusk - how serious are you about this bet?". Since the state is employing these sustainable methods to power its energy grids, thus, it had to face power cuts and blackouts during recent heatwaves. He added that if the firm failed to meet the 100 day target it would install the whole system for free.

What's in your sandwich? Subway disputes study on chicken
Soy protein, seasonings, and a ton of sodium make up the rest of the "chicken" product. On Wednesday, a Subway spokesperson more emphatically rejected the CBC's claims.

Patriots trading with Colts for TE Dwayne Allen
Allen isn't coming off a great season, with just 406 yards on 35 catches, but he is a good red-zone threat and a good blocker. Allen, 27, is locked up through 2019 and has cap hits of $4.9 million in 2017, $4 million in 2018 and $7.4 million in 2019.

West Ham vs. Chelsea
Hazard, who has dramatically improved this season under Conte, spoke about the influence of the animated Italian on the touchline. He was acquired by Monaco last summer from fellow Ligue 1 side Lille and has scored three goals in 34 games so far this season.

"You're on mate", Cannon-Brookes responded.

In September, a state-wide blackout in South Australia occurred after storms caused a transmission failure, according to Automotive News.

That was enough for Cannon-Brookes, who asked Musk to give him a week to sort out funding and politics. Tesla has set up an 80 MW battery farm in California in 90 days. This is understandably a problem for South Australia, and political gridlock has prevented the government from settling on a solution. Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has pushed for a return to the fossil fuel as part of a 'coal-fired future, ' but Tesla's battery technology may help wind, solar, and other renewable energy sources persist in Australia. The company has just rolled out its $5,500 Powerwall 2 high-capacity battery, manufactured in a Nevada "Gigafactory", which marks a major increase in storage capacity over existing models.
