I'm working on the plans for a solar array on my property to fully power my house and future electric cars. What I'd like to know is what the average amount of power consumption is on an average driven Tesla. Of course we're dealing with approximations but I figured a 100kWh battery pack does around 300 miles so .33kWh/mile x 12,000 = 4,000kWh per year. When I asked someone at Tesla in an email he relied exactly as follows... "I would say 12,00 is a good average to use." When pressed for 1,200 or 12,000 I never got a reply. So what is it, about, 1,200, 4,000, 12,000 kWh expected yearly use on a 12,000 mile/year Tesla?
