Elon Musk, the South African-born Canadian-American business magnate, investor, engineer, inventor and CEO of Space X, Tesla and other mega establishments just negotiated a deal worth about $200 million with Michael Cannon-Brookes, an Australian billionaire and co-founder of the software company Atlassian.
The Austrailian had seen a blog post talking about how Tesla can solve SA’s power woes in 100 days. He tweeted at Elon Musk, asking him if he is serious, and if he could bet that he can make guarantee 100MW in 100 days.
Holy s#%t https://t.co/I0Kiw3wZsd
Elon Musk affirmed, and added that if it is not working in 100 days, from the day contracts are signed, he would have lost the bet, and he would forfeit the money.
@mcannonbrookes Tesla will get the system installed and working 100 days from contract signature or it is free. That serious enough for you?
Mike Cannon agreed and asked for 7 days to sort out the money and politics involved in installing electricity in a sovereign nation.
@elonmusk legend! ☀️ You’re on mate. Give me 7 days to try sort out politics & funding. DM me a quote for approx 100MW cost – mates rates!
@mcannonbrookes $250/kWh at the pack level for 100MWh+ systems. Tesla is moving to fixed and open pricing and terms for all products.
Billionaires sha. If this is not goals, I don’t know what is.
