    Can Solar Panels Charge a Tesla

    Mar 30,2022 | Chloe Lacour

    Tesla has faster power performance, lower noise, and lower travel costs when compared to gasoline vehicles. However, there are numerous advantages and disadvantages, one of which is the cruising range.

    In general, even in the model's long-range version, the official data is 600 kilometers. This data is still based on ideal working conditions, and in the case of high-speed long-distance travel or in bad weather, battery life performance will be significantly reduced. Not only that, but the charging pile itself is relatively difficult to locate, even if 220V is found in the wild. The power supply is also an issue, as is fast charging.

    Then, if you use a standard power supply, it will take dozens of hours to charge, which is extremely inconvenient when you are outside. In the face of such an embarrassment, a modification factory saw an opportunity. They proposed a new modification method, as seen above. It was installed on the Tesla Model 3 vehicle's front cover. Such a solar panel configuration appears extremely strange. Many people see the appearance of this car and are left speechless, much like a quilt hanging on the vehicle.

    This model not only has one solar panel, but also a relatively small area on the roof that actively supplements the vehicle's power. On the roof, there is also a hard-core luggage rack that can bind a spare tire and, of course, you can put some fresh water on it, which is also a very practical configuration.

    Many people believe that by doing so, they can avoid the embarrassment of Tesla running long distances, but this is not the case. According to current solar panel technology, these two panels can only provide less than 200W of charging power even when the sun is shining brightly, so they can only charge our phones, but they want to charge Tesla. Such a battery charge is clearly a drop in the bucket, and it isn't even enough to drain the battery.

    In reality, we rely on a diesel generator installed in the trunk of this car and fuel stored on the roof. When our Tesla's battery runs out, we can use the generator to add fuel and start power generation, allowing us to generate electricity for ourselves. The team has been charged. Finally, a truly long cruising range is possible.

    This type of modification appears to be very successful, but it takes up an inordinate amount of space. Second, the overall feeling is very unsightly in terms of appearance. I'm curious if you'll enjoy it.
