    Awkwardly phrased, but these are revenues from sale of the emissions credits that Tesla is awarded by states for selling zero-emission vehicles. Every car manufacturer selling in California and some other states has to have a certain minimum mix of zero- or very low-emissions cars in the mix. If the OEM misses, they can make up the shortfall by buying credits from car companies, like Tesla, that over-complied.
