Tesla plans disconnecting its Superchargers from electric grid, which uses coal and natural gas to charge vehicles, to make its network run on solar panels and batteries.
Musk revealed the news in the response of a person who criticized the use of dirty electricity to charge their engines.
CEO tweeted that the placing of solar panels and batteries is currently in progress at Supercharger stations.
“All Superchargers are being converted to solar/battery power,” Musk said. “Over time, almost all will disconnect from the electricity grid.”
Tesla’s network of superchargers, which is all set to twofold in number by the end of 2017, has the biggest advantage for the customers of recovering 170 miles in just about 30 minutes.
