Tesla Benefitting from Green Credits

04-JUN-19

The concept of trading greenhouse gas credits is one that I really like. How it works is that companies by law have to have a certain amount of credits. They can either create credits by protecting the environment or they can buy credits from someone else who creates the credits.
