Last autumn Tesla opened six solar-powered “Supercharger” stations in California and predicted more than 100 would be in operation worldwide by 2015. The facilities, which provide no-fee power to owners of Tesla Model S electric sedans, cannot be used by other EV owners.

The company says the direct-current stations take only about 20 minutes to pump enough power into a Model S to drive about 150 miles.
