    Charge your Tesla at home using clean energy ONLY

    Hi, my name is Dario and I have developed a system that makes possible to charge your Tesla using clean energy ONLY from your solar panels. I named it ChOp (charge optimizer).

    SF Bay Area Residents - Are You Really Saving Money vs Gas?

    One of the main reasons for recently purchasing the LR AWD Model 3 was to save on gas, especially compared to our gas guzzling SUV. My wife and I don't have a terribly long commute and will probably only drive it about 8,000 - 10,000 miles per year. I live in the East Bay, where it gets pretty...

    Hi all, Here are the 2 myths I have heard about saving money when home charging in Hawaii: 1. It is cheaper to charge your Tesla with the slow, standard mobile connector (110/120V @ 15A) than with a 50A (240V) socket using a NEMA 14-50 adapter or Tesla Wall Connector 2.

    Solar with Heat Pump for Heating/Cooling House

    My wife and I will be building a house later this year, and we're very interested in using solar to power as much of it as possible (ideally 100% after factoring in net metering). As we'll be building in southern Maine, we're very concerned about the cost to heat the home. Both our builder and...

    Help finding the video demonstrating efficiency of coal powered Tesla vs gasoline ICE

    One of the common, albeit misguided, criticisms of electric vehicles is that they get their electricity from coal, thus making them effectively more of a pollutant than a traditional ICE car. I seem to recall a video of either JB or Elon debunking that claim. If my memory serves me correctly...

    Suggestion for Hydro Companies (This might benefit you)

    Hello Canadians, I sent Hydro Ottawa a message using their contact form. Basically I was suggesting to have a rebate program for EV owners similar to what they are currently offering for new homes for their efficient appliances. I mentioned that electric vehicles are normally charged during...

    First: love the car - this is not intended to indicate it is anything but a game-changer (I posted compiled shipment numbers showing how game-changing here), the watt-hours-per-mile indicator in the car does NOT really tell you how much electricity you will need from your grid/solar connection...
