    Send All Tesla's to Rhode Island... Challange Accepted?

    Musk laid down the gauntlet. If I weren't building satellites to send up on his rockets, I'd find this an intriguing idea to consider. Who among you is up to the challenge? And I just realized my grammatical error in the thread title.... Sigh.

    Golden to Breckenridge - Nissan Leaf Experience

    Hey guys. I know this is a Tesla forum, but I'm guessing some of you have had Leafs at some point, and have tried what I'm about to ask. So there's a family reunion next week (June 5-8) in Breckenridge. I'd really like to take the Leaf there if we could. I'll be starting out in Broomfield, but...

    350kW Supercharger "Children's Toy" Not for Cars, but the Semi

    So given Elon's announcement yesterday that the semi will indeed be long haul, I have a theory to put out there. I don't believe the next versions (350kW or above) of the supercharger will be meant for the cars (S,X, 3) but instead for the semis. Given the peak performance levels of the S and...

    Maximum Solar Capability to Convert Electeicity

    I'm probably just googling the wrong terms. What I'm trying to figure out is the maximum theoretical capability of a silicon (or other material) solar panel to convert sunlight into electricity. What I'm asking is analogous to the thermodynamic efficiencies of various heat technologies. The...

    New Level Three Chargers (Not Tesla) on the way in New Mexico

    FYI... I emailed PNM earlier this week asking if any more DC fast chargers were planned in the PNM area. They replied this afternoon two were planned "within a couple of months"! One will be placed between Albuquerque and Santa Fe, the other within Santa Fe itself. I'm quite excited about the...
