Tesla CEO Elon Musk said Friday that it's halfway done building the world's biggest battery in South Australia. Tesla will build the 100 MW system using several of its massive commercial battery pack, the Powerpack. It will draw energy from Neoen's Hornsdale wind farm that's 142 miles north of Adelaide, ultimately storing enough electricity to power up to 50,000 homes.

Since acquiring SolarCity in November, Tesla has been doubling down on its renewable energy efforts.

Tesla has been selling the Powerpack and its at-home battery, the Powerwall, since 2015.
