Recently, Elon Musk won a $50 million bet when he completed the building of the world's largest lithium-ion battery in less than 100 days for the southern Australian outback.

"Neoen is focused on delivering long-term, sustainable energy solutions to the country and ambitious projects like the Hornsdale Power Reserve will contribute to South Australia leading the way into a clean energy future".

The world's biggest lithium-ion battery has plugged into an Australian state grid, an official said Friday, easily delivering on Tesla Inc. chief executive Elon Musk's 100-day guarantee.

SABRINA THE TEENAGE WITCH Gets a 2-Season Order at Netflix
The now untitled Sabrina series will be based on the Archie Comics' graphic novel The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina . The streaming service announced today that it has put in a two-season order for the spinoff of the CW's Riverdale .

"Today's launch follows a successful period of regulatory testing that ensured the battery's ability to both act as a generator and charge to and from the National Energy Market", South Australia said on December 1. That's no small feat considering the battery is the size of a football field and is capable of powering 30,000 homes.

The battery power packs are installed near the Outback town of Jamestown, about 200 kilometres (120 miles) north of the state capital Adelaide. This is especially important given that this state gets a whopping 40 percent of its electricity from wind energy.

Tesla partnered with Neoen to build the battery, which is more than three times larger than the previous record-holder at Mira Loma, California. South Australia, of course, is no stranger to power outages, as blackouts left much of the area without power last summer. Further blackouts plagued the state over the next few months.
