Tesla Truck Will Require Energy Of 4,000 Homes: Study
During his presentation unveiling the truck, Tesla CEO Elon Musk told audiences that the electric truck would recharge in as less as 30 minutes. According to John Federsen, chief executive officer of Aurora Energy Research, this means that the company's network of megachargers would need to generate power of as much as 1,600 watts within that span of time. That is enough energy to power upto 4,000 average American homes at the same time.
From the article:
Mr Feddersen used the example of the Tesla truck to highlight the need for greater debate around how grid infrastructure will need to be adapted to meet demand for electric vehicles. “There are smart and dumb ways to incorporate this level of capacity requirement into the system, but either way, fully electrified road transport will need a large amount of new infrastructure,” he told the Financial Times.
