I wonder how many EV (Tesla) owners have enough solar to offset the cost of charging their battery. I recently read a LA Times article that discussed the issues with charging EVs in public and at home across the country. The article singled Hawaii out by stating “where electricity is expensive, could actually pay more to charge an EV than run a car on gas”… In Hawaii how many EV owners pay to charge or charge for free? For the question “do we pay more to charge an EV than run a car on gas” I believe we EV owners fall into one of two categories; 1) PV/public charging for free or 2) pay for charging/electricity. Is your electricity bill ZERO? Or you can say that you have enough PV to charge your EV for free but not enough PV for your house use. You can simply answer with. Electricity cost is for my: PV/public charging for free 1. EV and house is Zero 2. EV is Zero, House is not PV covered. 3. Own EV and charge exclusively at public/free chargers. Pay for charging/electricity. 4. Own EV, but no PV/Solar therefore pay for electricity. A little background for you, if you have the time to read it. Discarding the arguments about the cost of the EV, cost of the PV/Solar, cost of EV charging circuit/equipment; how many EV owners or future owners have sufficient PV/Solar to offset the cost of electricity to charge your EV? Some EV owners live in condos or apartments and don’t home charge, so they charge free (public or work) or pay because they have no PV/Solar. We are not counting the HECO grid administrative fee of $19.50 a month. We are not asking how much your total electric bill is.
