Power your Tesla with solar

Solar panel systems are a great way to charge EVs like a Tesla. EVs are already much cheaper to charge than powering a traditional car with gas (around 3.6 times cheaper per mile for a Tesla). Using solar panels to charge your EV can reduce costs and save even more! A small solar panel array with only 10 panels can provide enough power to charge a Tesla’s battery. While going solar may seem expensive, it’s one of the best ways to save money over the lifetime of your EV.
