It does not take 4000 homes worth of energy for a Tesla Semi

    An Oxford study said that it would take the power of 4000 homes to charge a Tesla semi. I ran the numbers myself and found that solar panels on 5 or 6 rooftops would supply enough energy for a Tesla Semi's annual needs (link). The Oxford study seems to be framed to put the Megacharger's needs into as negative a light as possible.
