Tesla puts a car charger in your own home

from now on Tesla will be available to install charging stations in the homes of their customers. With this service, the american brand expands again your activity and what you did with the roof solar, which launched just three months ago, or with the battery Powerwall for the home.

These new charging stations Tesla have a power of 240 volts and are able to recharge cars like the new Tesla Model 3 at the rate of 40 miles of range per hour of charging. For now, just has announced its installation in the united States, with a cost of $ 1,000 (about 850 euros). But given the intentions expansionist of the company, it is very likely that soon to see in our country.

The car charger in the house and the plans of Tesla

The set of services offered by Tesla, which include the car charger, the high capacity battery Powerwall and the roof and solar, are part of a larger plan. While it is true that an electric vehicle do not leave traces in the environment, yes that make it the most central that generate the electricity that it consumes. For this reason, the company of Elon Musk is not satisfied with the development of cars like the Model S or the Model X, which are revolutionising the market of the automotive industry, but devotes part of its efforts to promote an infrastructure that will feed them with 100% renewable energies.

In Spain are already available batteries for self-consumption Powerwall 2 with a capacity of 14 kWh, although you can install more than one at each address. The same is not true with rooftops solar, that although Tesla has reached an agreement with Panasonic for the manufacture of the photoelectric cells would have to cope with the so-called “tax-the-sun” of our country, which is levied for each kWh generated by the user. Even so, it seems that Tesla does not give up efforts to enter our market, as demonstrated with its plan to install another 14 supercargadores Tesla in Spanish territory.
