How many cars do you think can fill up per week, with their canopy of solar panels? What a joke. Free for life! Wow. There really is a sucker born every minute...
Are they renting the land? Yes? Well, that will hit the bottom line, because rent isn't free. What is the value of filling up a car "for Free"? What are the Fixed and variable costs for running these stations? Like depreciation, maintenance and insurance. I mean, really folks, how can it be free forever? What is the current value of charging up? In Dollars, based on the average cost of electricity in the USA?
What a scam. It won't be free when Elon discharges this obligation in bankruptcy 3 years from now.
Did you listen to the call? There is great acceptence at fast food / retail locations to place the chargers. They are attracting a captive upscale customer for 20-30 minutes. The solar panel, produced by Solar City, will be installed and the Superstation can run vitually free. Most people don't go on road trips that ofen so a home charger will do.and the battery is warrented for ever by Musk. Before you post understand what your saying.
