Tesla to turn 50,000 South Australian homes into power generators, that too for free
Tesla has just signed a deal with the South Australian government to install solar panels and Tesla batteries in 50,000 homes, that too at no cost to the residents. The landmark plan would turn houses into a giant, interconnected power plant.
South Australia is already home to world’s biggest battery in an Elon Musk-driven project to provide electricity for more than 30,000 homes.
“My government has already delivered the world’s biggest battery, now we will deliver the world’s largest virtual power plant,” state Premier Jay Weatherill said in a statement. “We will use people’s homes as a way to generate energy for the South Australian grid, with participating households benefitting with significant savings in their energy bills.”
