    I live in a suburb of Charlotte and Union Power Cooperative is the power company for our region! Not Duke Energy!

    Any idea whether it's worth it to charge after midnight only or NOT?!

    Thank you GURUS

    In my opinion it's a good idea to charge at night anyway when the demand is way down. The Tesla is a thirsty sucker when you charge at 240V!

    I plug in at peak times since our power company in its wisdom won't let me have a night rate discount since I have solar panels.
    One of these days they might figure out that they are shooting themselves in the foot. Until then I'll charge when it's convenient for me.
