The 3.5 GW of solar power capacity has installed to date has produced more than 13 terawatt-hours (TWh) of emissions-free electricity, more then twice the 5.26 TWh of electrical energy consumed by the number of electric vehicles it has sold, according to a report from the company.
Tesla's cumulative solar power installations to date are projected to generate 86.5 TWh of energy over an expected average lifespan of 35 years.
The more than half-million electric cars it has delivered have been driven more than 10 billion miles and Tesla's SuperCharger network has provided 595 GWh of energy for them, according to the report. That's about equivalent to 75 million gallons of gasoline that hasn't been combusted, resulting in the avoidance of more than 680,000 metric tons of CO2.
All told, Tesla reports that its EVs have prevented more than 4 million metric tons of CO2 emissions so far.
