The PV on my roof doesn't plug directly into the car because of fluctuations due to moving clouds, rain etc which wont provide a stable voltage. It is possible to buy solar car ports that do plug directly into the car, and have a buffer battery to balance out the power delivery.-eek-
Wait, what? I never heard about a Solar charger... can you elaborate, possibly add a photo?
You guys don't even know what a Prius is how would you know a Tesla? Just teasing. I grew up in Kansas and have lived in the Bay Area for 6 years. I take a beating every time I tell someone I am from Kansas.Exactly, we're much too busy keeping our covered wagons from tipping to worry about such things.
Agreed. In all honesty, it feels like i see an equal amount or more Teslas than Eliges in the Bay Area. No more garage queens, we're outnumbered on the streets fellas.Living in the Bay Area and working in Silicon Valley means I've had the Telsa question a few times since getting my Elise a few months ago.
Interestingly, there's a yellow Elise at Dietsch Werks that was the first Tesla prototype.
