Tesla To Build Battery Backup For S Australia | NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE KNOW THAT

By Paul Homewood h/t Philip Bratby       Tesla to build world’s largest lithium ion battery in Australia, reports the BBC.

The significant point here though is the capacity quoted:
100 MW or 129 MWh

In other words, enough to run for about 80 minutes.
Musk previously quoted a price of $250/KW, which works out at $25 million.
This only covers the cost of the batteries themselves. Including infrastructure and other costs,earlier estimates put the total cost as high as £125 million for 300 MW.

In the UK, the Capacity Market auction has yielded a price of £22.50/KW, on the face of it a much cheaper option. And standby capacity, such as CCGT, can provide back up power all day long, not just for an hour.
