Charging a Tesla Model 3 won’t be free, but it doesn’t have to be expensive either. Let’s explore some options to see which is the cheapest. Don’t miss these updates, subscribe at https://teslanomics.co/join
// First Charging Option – Your House
If you can’t install a charger this won’t apply. In my research I found that my local electricity provider offers special discounted rates for EV owners. Make sure to check with your local power company about this as well.
My rate during Super Off-Peak time = $0.22
// Second Charging Option – Public Networks
Public networks like Chargepoint, EVGo, and Blink offer various rates depending on the area. Check out plugshare.com for info on options near you.
Another interesting option in this space is EV Match which pairs hosts with chargers with drivers. The economics don’t always work but the convenience may overrule a few cents per kWh.

My rate for public networks were between $0.25 – $0.60
// Third Charging Option – Tesla Superchargers
Assuming there is a Tesla Supercharger near you this could very well be your best option. It’s going to be the fastest for sure, and in many states/countries they offer a competitive price.

My Tesla Supercharger Rate $0.20
// Fourth Charging Option – Free Networks
As you may have guessed these choices aren’t super reliable because of how popular they are. The network I’ve seen in SoCal is called Volta and while you charge they display an advertisement.
// Fifth Charging Option – Home with Solar
The cheapest option I found in my analysis was using solar panels on my house. If you’re looking to get Solar the site I used to help decide is https://teslanomics.co/energysage
On EnergySage they let installers bid on your project and give you a beautiful dashboard breaking it all down.

My Rate with Solar $0.09
