Atlassian co-founder Mike Cannon-Brookes and his wife Annie Cannon-Brookes have partnered with Tesla and 5B to build 100 stand-alone solar and battery units in 100 days.
It’s hoped the Resilient Energy Collective will help people get back on their feet quickly as well as ensue that they will have access to electricity if another natural disaster strikes in the future.
At the moment, they’ve targeted areas in Victoria, New South Wales and South Australia for the energy units.
According to the Sydney Morning Herald, the Collective has already installed two units near Cobargo in NSW and one in Victoria’s East Gippsland.
It took just 48 hours to install one of the units in Cobargo, which is already operational, and now services a radio tower used by police, the NSW Rural Fire Service, the National Parks and Wildlife Service and Eurobodalla Shire radio.
