Elon Musk says he can fix South Australia's power crisis within 100 days, and if he fails to do so, he'll finish the job for free. "Is that serious enough for you?"

Cannon-Brookes responded to Musk "you're on mate" and asked for a quote at "mates rates" on the cost of installing a 100-megawatt system. The manufacturer of electric cars and batteries offered to provide 100 megawatts per hour of battery storage at a cost of 25 million dollars.

CEFC chief executive Oliver Yates said the green bank was already talking to battery companies about storage for South Australia and "To the extent Tesla is interested, we'll also talk with them".
Weatherill, for his part, said the conversation about the battery proposal was "positive". It won't be up to the federal government to approve the plan or not, though - the electricity generation in the region is privatized, so Musk's proposal is in the hands of individual companies.
