With this project Tesla offers the same services at cost-effective or even cheaper, with zero-emission and quicker manner with its battery system. The system proves so efficient that it is predicted that it would touch the $1 ml. mark in January, but the company complained that they are not being paid properly, as they themselves were not sure about the efficiency of their Powerpack project.
