When Elon Musk promised to deliver 100-megawatts of battery power-storage in 100 days to South Australia – via Twitter – he disclosed for the first time Tesla’s pricing for its battery packs: $250 per kilowatt hour when deployed on a large scale (see, “Elon Musk may be on the hook for battery power in Australia”).
At full capacity, Tesla’s battery “gigafactory” could produce enough battery pack capacity for 125 Australia-size projects a year.
“Tesla may now be uniquely positioned to deploy large battery projects on three months' notice, as promised,” says Bloomberg.
