Teslanomics Details Cost Of Charging EV From Rooftop Solar – Video
Teslanomics encourages us that it’s possible to charge Tesla for roughly $25 a month using solar.
In total, host Ben Sullins has installed 16 panels, good for a PV system rated at 5.12 kW (with a Powerwall coming soon).
As a result, Ben states he has lowered his monthly bill from $190 to just $10, resulting in $180 monthly savings. The total cost of the system, spread over 25 years will be $47 a month, so like a virtual no-brainer.
Adding in utility fees, the bottom line cost of the system works out to be $57 a month, of which his Tesla usually draws 45% of his monthly energy bill, which is less than $26 of the system fees.
Naturally if someone drives more, the energy cost would be higher, but then there is also more rudimentary savings compared to gas.
