Elon Musk is a brilliant entrepreneur. The founder of Tesla and SpaceX is also quite confident and believes he can solve the power crisis in South Australia, which has recently experienced a series of blackouts.

Lyndon Rive, who is one of Tesla’s executives, said that the company can take care of South Australia’s power problems within 100 days by building a 100MW battery storage farm. Australian billionaire and co-founder of a software company called Atlassian then reached out to Elon Musk on Twitter asking him how serious he is about Tesla’s proposed plan.

Elon Musk quickly replied by saying that Tesla will get the system installed and working within 100 days of signing the contract. If it fails to do so, it will be free of charge. The conversation between the two entrepreneurs was seen by Australian Greens Senator Sarah Hanson-Young who joined in and told Musk, “Let’s talk!”

Elon Musk is apparently very confident in the company’s abilities to deliver on its promise. The chances of Tesla solving South Australia’s power crisis in 100 days are quite high, based on the company’s previous projects. Last year, it built an 80MW battery storage farm in California in just 90 days.
