On 5 February 2018 Quartz reported:
In the past two years, the state of South Australia has suffered many blackouts, blamed on high demand and poor supply from both fossil-fuel and renewable generators. In response, the government switched on the world's largest lithium-ion battery in December, and now it is launching a program to install solar panels on homes and distribute Tesla batteries to create the world's largest 'virtual power plant.'
Global Good News service views this news as a sign of rising positivity in the field of science, documenting the growth of life-supporting, evolutionary trends.
If all goes according to plan, the state would have, in effect, a distributed power plant that can produce 250 MW of power from rooftop solar panels and store 650 MWh of energy in Tesla batteries. When it's up and running -- planned for 2021 -- it will be the world's largest virtual power plant, about three times the size of the biggest such plant in existence today, according to Danny Price of Frontier Economics, which helped the government to create the program.
