Australia has energy crisis and Elon Musk has promised to solve it within 100 days. He intends to do it by using Tesla technology to fix the problem that has caused power blackouts.

Musk made a commitment on Thursday to supply up to 100 megawatt hours of power, and he said in a Twitter conversation with tech billionaire Mike Cannon-Brookes that "Tesla will get the system installed and working 100 days from contract signature or it is free."

Later on Musk added that he could supply the system at $250 per kilowatt hour, and the entire project would cost $25 million.

Sever storms caused a state-wide blackout in South Australia last September. Malcolm Turnbull, Australian PM blamed it on renewable power, which is now accounting for around 40 percent of the state's entire power generation.

While South Australian Premier Jay Weatherill doesn't agree that the blackout was caused by relying too much on renewable power, he said he's looking forward to discussing Musk's proposal.
