How are Tesla Tours Solar-Powered?
All Tesla Tours are solar-powered: we re-charge Big Red at up to 80A (100km/hr of range) with a Tesla Wall Charger grid-tied to our 4.5 kW, 18-panel solar PV array.
Between June 2015 & April 2017, we've generated 9.45 MWh: enough to drive a Telsa Model S over 40,000 km, or roughly 20,000km/year, which is more than enough electricity for all of our planned touring for the years to come.
A big shout-out to Michael Geldreich & his expert PV install team at www.pttp-electric.ca for installing Phase 1 of our master plan at Tesla Tours.
Stay tuned for Phase 2, as Tesla Glass PV Roof tiles go on sale today, and Tesla Tours Take 2: a blue Model 3 are both scheduled to arrive for the 2018 touring season.
