I'm new, it's late, sorry I haven't searched this forum.
I'm a wannabe Model S owner and am wondering how practical it is to charge a Model S using rooftop solar panels - rooftop as in house/garage, not car. Has anyone done a payback calculation? I live in sunny Colorado, and think solar charging would be as practical here as anywhere.I'm curious if many Tesla owners have gone solar on their charging options.
I did see one set of photos on this site showing an entire garage roof of solar panels...I wonder what that cost and how it works. You have to have some sort of batteries to store the collected energy, correct?
