To charge a Tesla with solar panels you would need at least 75 solar panels to give the Tesla car battery a full charge.

You can charge a Tesla with solar panels but it will take a long time as well and require lots of solar panels.

A full Tesla Charge usually lasts for 300 to 350 miles.

Although you don't want to wait until you fully drain the battery as you'll be stranded.

When your Tesla battery level gets down to half then you want to charge it to keep going.

You can charge your Tesla at charging stations or at home using a standard outlet or a fast charging system that you can get installed.

A Tesla car can usually go up to 300 miles to 350 miles on a single one charge.

However the distance the Tesla can go on one charge can vary depending on your driving habits and if you do a lot of stop and go driving then the miles you can go on one charge can decrease to as much as 200 miles.

The stop and go driving uses more battery power than just cruising down the road because it takes more amps to get the Tesla motor going.

Also if you use the air conditioner, heater etc then the range can also go down.

The cost to charge a Tesla at a charging station ranges from $11.00 to $22.00 per charge.

The charging cost of the Tesla at a charging station depends on how much charging you need or want and the cost of their rates for the KWH.

For example most Tesla Charging Stations charge $11.00 for a charge to give you a range of 150 miles.

And to charge a Tesla at a charging station to give you 250 miles of range then it can cost $22.00

A Tesla can be slightly cheaper than using a gasoline car but you have to wait for the Tesla to charge up.

With a gasoline engine or diesel engine you just fill the tank with the gasoline or diesel which takes a few minutes and then pay for it and be on your way.

However you can charge your Tesla at home as well.
