In San Francisco, SolarCity is installing solar-powered electric vehicle recharging stations at offices on Highway 101, anticipating a rapid growth in demand. The fast-charge station costs between $2k to $6k to install, and a recharge takes about 3.5 hours, while a commuter is working. SolarCity has installed about 100 charging stations for Tesla customers.
