Would one of you Electrical Engineers take this one?
I've been checking out the companies on the internet that have designs for solar carports for charging EVs. Each of the companies give the DC output of their panels but I don't know the amount of electricity required to recharge the 85kWh Tesla Battery Pack. I only am interested in the amount of DC 10kW output required to recharge the 85kWh Tesla Battery Pack using the single charger because that is what I'm planning on purchasing but feel free to figure the other battery packs and 20kW Twin charging as well.
Also, are there any current Roadster owners that are using solar collectors to recharge your Roadster?
