How Many Solar Panels To Charge a Tesla?
Purchasing a Tesla could save you tons in fuel costs every year but, how many solar panels should you add to your home to generate enough electricity to charge your Tesla?
Depending on the time of year and where property is located, each one of your solar panels can generate between 1-2kWh per panel a day. The standard Tesla Model 3 has a 50kW battery which means-
You need about 26 solar panels to fully charge a 50kW Tesla car battery everyday!
Electric vehicles can cost less than $500 per year and even in states where electricity is expensive, the overall cost of an EV is lower than the cost of a regular car. If you're not driving 300 miles everyday then the number of solar panels necessary to charge your EV will be less. Credible Solar will generate you a free, custom made proposal to help you discover exactly how many panels are necessary to power your home and electric vehicle(s).
Equipment Necessary To Charge Your Electric Vehicle With Solar:
- Solar panel installation. Request your proposal now!
- A level 2 EV (NEMA) Charger. Either a central string inverter that combines the DC output of the solar panels to AC, or micro-inverters that convert each panel’s output to AC and send it to a combiner box that connects to your main AC panel.
- 50 AMP female plug with its own breaker for the level 2 EV charger.
