The Tesla chargers should be updated to allow connecting to a DC source. I had to buy a $20,000 Chadeemo Charger for my Tesla,so I could charge my car from my 250kW Nickel Iron battery bank. I currently charge at 10kw, which is fine for home charging. It would require very little effort on the part of Tesla to update the chargers to allow for connecting directly to a Solar array and/or battery bank.
A slow 3kw charger would be sufficient for most daily charging needs, which would allow many Tesla owners to charge from a typical offgrid energy system, such as a 48v 50kw battery bank.
