South Australia state govt says to build new gas power plant
SYDNEY (Reuters) -- The state of South Australia is to build a new gas power plant as part of a $377.65 million plan to provide energy security and avoid a repeat of damaging blackouts that struck last year.
State Premier Jay Weatherill told a news conference the private sector would also build Australia's largest battery storage plant, with a 100MW output.
The announcement comes just four days after Tesla Inc boss Elon Musk offered to save the state from blackouts by installing $25 million worth of battery storage.
