What You Need to Know

Description:

2012 Tesla S Signature Performance.

Other Benefits:

We designed our Solar System to power 4 electric vehicles: 2 Teslas and 2 Chevy Volts. We currently have 6 Megawatts "in the bank" at PSNH. We have it in the bank because we have used 6 Megawatts of free charging at Chargepoint EV Charging Station at Logan Airport and Prudential Center.

Maintenance Requirements:

Minimal yearly maintenance

Efficiency or Sustainability Improvements:

No gas motor. 300 miles on a charge. Zero to the speed limit in 2 seconds. Can be fully charged with your home solar system with as little as 2 pallets of solar panels (about $10,000 worth of panels, which you will be getting back in Rebates). Hundreds of FREE charging stations (for now anyway).

My Motivation:

1. Wanted to be able to have transportation "no matter what". 2. Provides one leg of a 4 leg retirement plan (locking in the "things we need"). 3. Sort of an Insurance Policy. 4. Self Reliance....make my own electricity to power my car.

Advice:

Most people checked the "doability" of Solar years ago, when the Feds limited credits to $1500 and Solar PV was $5 a watt. The Feds are now Rebating 30% unlimited!!!! Solar PV is less than "a buck a watt". Now is the time folks. The bottom is in and the bell is ringing.

Experience with Installer:

Go to Tesla.com. Design your car. Hit "BUY NOW". Install a 50 amp dryer plug in your garage while you wait for Tesla to deliver your car.
