Tesla China announced Thursday that it will launch a station with solar power, energy storage, and supercharging capabilities in Shanghai on July 17.
Tesla is a big promoter of clean energy, including solar power, and sells the Powerwall, a solar charging device, on its US website.
Tesla's new Supercharger station converts sunlight into electricity, stores the energy through the Powerwall, and uses it to charge vehicles.
In fact, this is not Tesla's first attempt in China.
Late last month, Tesla built a new Supercharger station in light-flooded Lhasa that cleverly uses a solar power generation and storage system to achieve an efficient cycle of clean energy.
The Supercharger station consists of a solar power generation system, an energy storage system and charging piles. The photovoltaic system converts solar energy into electricity continuously, while the energy storage system stores energy and uses the charging pile to charge the vehicle.
With an altitude of 3,650 meters and over 3,000 hours of sunshine throughout the year, Lhasa is one of the cities with the longest average sunshine hours in China.
As early as ten years ago, solar cookers and solar water heaters were commonly used by Lhasa residents, and solar energy has become an important source of energy for Lhasa residents' lives.
