You may be right about the solar aspect; the panels on the stations themselves seem inadequate to make up for the potential usage from supercharging. Fortunately, the stations are connected to the grid so they don't rely on solar to operate. It will be interesting to see if they ever release specs to see just how much solar power they expect to generate. Of course Tesla can also build other solar farm type installations to keep their supercharger network "carbon-neutral". At least they have a strategy for muting the "coal powered car" dimwits, something GM seems unable to effectively combat.I can appreciate that Tesla owners love phallic gadgets! However, other than that, it's unclear why anyone should take this seriously. I'm looking at the panels. How many kWh are they going to produce? Maybe 40 kWh on a good day. That's good for what, one charge? Half a charge? How about on a cloudy day? Better yet, how about a cloudy day in the winter in Oregon? Ba ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!
You can pretend with a few. No big deal. If you start rolling out enough to matter then it's going to cost a bundle for even a limited number of charges.
They're calling BS on the charging stations not the car.
