    The only cost to Tesla is the capital cost and maybe a bit of maintenance.  They actually figured those costs into the price of the Model S.  That at least is what Elon Musk said in an interview discussing it.

      (and I'd love to see the accounting for it) it's not "free" it's "prepaid" . . . and any time you charge at home on your own dime you're paying twice.  Or something.

      Is it actually in the purchase contract that you're guaranteed "free" power forever?

      Fake Left, Drive Right . . . not my idea of a Democrat . . .
