Telsa founder aElon Musk just offered Australia the deal of a lifetime that sounds more like he runs a local pizza shop rather than a giant tech empire: 100 days or it’s free.

Musk stated on Twitter that he could fix South Australia power network by building a 100MW battery storage farm within 100 days. If Tesla doesn’t complete the task within 100 days, they’ll still build it, but free of charge.

According to CNN, South Australia’s population suffer regular power cuts and energy shortages. Tesla has since offered to provide 100 megawatt hours of battery storage at a total cost of $25 million, with Lyndon Rive, co-founder of Solar City and head of Tesla’s energy division, stating he could fix the problem within 100 days. Musk just basically upped the anti with the local car salesman-like promise.
