Great Idea on the retired packs for storage, I had not thought of that.. Not going to be a huge supply of those at first though.

News since Friday has some conflicting information. A earlier comment from Elon Musk indicates they will make some sort of announcement in July and another more recent comment from JB Straubel says within a year. I suppose July is within a year.
