They focused on several recent station installs https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yfgus6fOGts.
Then there were the batteries.  Traditional lead-acid batteries are being replaced by lithium.
The cost was five to seven times, but now Lithium is about 1.5 times the cost.

Eaton does monitoring monthly and notifies customers when there is a problem.
