They supposed to run on solar power only, but Ed Neidermayer of the Kanban and Bloomberg has spotted them charging off diesel generators...

An interesting comment was brought up in one of the video's posted:

Edward, you're deliberately misleading. Harris Ranch is one of the bigger Supercharger locations in California. 100 feet off-camera is where those Supercharging charging stalls are and where the cars go to charge. The diesel generator here isn't being used to charge the cars, as you're implying. The electronics and interconnects aren't designed for that and doesn't produce the clean sine wave needed by the car's inverters. You have no idea. Disingenuous.

I wonder who is behind this. It also is somewhat confusing as it looks like there is bountiful sunshine in the top video at least.

The optics just aren't good. Those Tesla owners should be ashamed.

LOL, so you see according to this commenter TESLA cars actually discriminate against energy, they will refuse any energy that wasn't created in a fair and ethical manner... ;) Ridiculous.

Ed NEidermayer sums it up on Autoline. Its about the ZEV credits that Tesla gains and then resells to other manufacturers...

Need to hear the gov't take on this unless they're fully in support of it and really want it.
in support of what? Yes they want renewale fuels and energy on the road, but at what cost? Ed does say in the video he's surprised that Tesla is the only one gaming the system to this degree...

Credits.

Could be possible it's not being used exactly how it should but if it is, then clearly they're in support of this.
