Here's the tweet: https://twitter.com/elonmusk/status/776677760039133185 Given the wording used in the tweet, this is probably something that hasn't been firmly decided upon as yet, but rather may or not hold

As a result of the Aliso Canyon natural gas leak earlier this year, and the facility's subsequent closure, the California Public Utilities Commission mandated (in May) an accelerated procurement for energy storage in order to avoid potential electricity shortfall issues and rolling blackouts.
