The largest lithium-ion battery has started providing power into an electricity grid in South Australia. The 100-megawatt battery plant that was built by Tesla was officially activated last November 24, Friday, although it had been providing power November 23 due to the demand caused by the summer heat as reported by BBC News.

The giant lithium-ion battery would prevent statewide blackouts and Elon Musk has described the battery power plant to be 3-times more powerful than the world’s next biggest battery.

The Tesla giant battery is connected to a wind farm that is run by the French energy company Neoen, and is located 200km north of Adelaide.
