Moreover, the cost of a usable battery capacity is $157 per kilowatt-hour in comparison to the high-end price 13 years ago. In addition, the cost is further expected to drop as it is proportional to the magnitude in numerous levels in terms of chemistry, production, module design, and production. These levels are progressing at a rapid pace.
