Project Titan came about a year before Walmart sued Tesla, claiming the company failed to manage and maintain solar panels on hundreds of Walmart roofs around the US according to their agreement, which stipulated that Tesla still owned all of the solar panels on Walmart's roofs. Tesla's negligence resulted in fires on the roofs of seven Walmart stores in states from Ohio to California, Walmart alleged in the lawsuit. 

Amphenol did not immediately respond to Business Insider's request for comment.

In its statement, Tesla described Project Titan as a remediation effort to limit any impact the connector may have had, even though we are not aware of any equipment manufacturer or regulator that has determined any substantial hazard exists.
