Tesla Model S In Silver Color On Desert Road

U.S. ENERGY SOURCES

While there are exceptions, most electricity in the United States is generated by steam turbines. Energy is used to turn water into steam. The steam is then used to move the turbines creating mechanical energy that is converted into electricity.

REDUCING EMISSIONS
Electricity will grow increasingly cleaner as new, modern power plants replace inefficient ones. As the grid shifts to more efficient technologies and uses more renewable sources, electric vehicle emissions drop even further.

GAINING EFFICIENCY
Efficiency is often thought of in terms of range: more efficient cars can drive farther on a gallon of gas or a kWh of electricity. The Tesla powertrain is more efficient at using energy than a combustion engine. Only about 20-25% of the energy stored in gas actually turns the wheels. A Tesla is about three times more efficient.

DRIVE ON SUNLIGHT
If you’re looking to reduce your driving emissions even further, consider installing solar panels at your home. You’ll produce renewable energy to power your home and your car. Model S becomes truly zero emissions.
