OK, now that we know the MSRP, and the charging and running costs, let’s take a look at ways to reduce electricity costs.
How to reduce the cost of charging a Tesla – 10 tips
The 10 tips below can help you to substantially reduce the cost of charging and running a Tesla.
 Charge at night (if you’re an appropriate tariff). Many power companies offer energy plans that have reduced rates for offpeak electricity consumption. Charging a Tesla at night can potentially cut your charging costs in half. Consider getting in touch with your energy provider to see if this option is available and suitable for you.
 Limit high speed driving. Driving a Tesla at high speeds uses more electricity than at lower speeds. Consider reducing your speed to reduce your electric bills.
 Limit rapid acceleration. Regular rapid acceleration can consume a significant amount of electricity. A more gradual / casual acceleration will help reduce your power consumption and, as a result, reduce the frequency & cost of charging.
 Limit stopandgo driving. Don’t race to the next red light. Consider slowing down, within reason of course, when you’re coming up to a red light. In many cases the light will turn green before you have to stop. This will help you conserve battery power.
 Avoid steep hills (if possible and within reason). Driving up steep hills consumes more electricity than average. If you regularly encounter steep inclines while driving, consider taking an alternate route. If you can avoid steep hills, even if it extends your trip slightly, you can potentially reduce the amount of electricity you consume.
 Keep an eye on the Energy App. Compare how you’re driving with the results on Tesla’s Energy App (on the touchscreen). Adjusting your driving, as you can see from the tips above, can significantly reduce the amount of power you’re consuming. Monitoring the impact of how you’re driving can help you identify additional ways to drive more efficiently.
 Lighten the load. The heavier your Tesla, the more power it will consume. If you have unnecessary cargo, remove it to extend your range and keep your charging frequency, and therefore, charging costs low.
 Reduce drag. Roof racks and open windows make cars less aerodynamic. As a result, more electricity is consumed when driving. If you have a roof rack and you’re not using it, consider removing it. And consider closing windows if it’s comfortable to do so. Also, some Tesla models (e.g. Model 3) can come equipped with aero wheels. Putting the cover on these will help reduce drag even more. It’s also worth keeping an eye on tyre pressure too as this will help keep your vehicle running at maximum efficiency.
 Maintain your battery. This can help keep your battery running at peak performance. Don’t let the battery level get too low, set the appropriate charge limit, etc. – check your owner’s manual for details.
 Shop around for a better unit rate. Utility companies tend to offer discounted electricity rates to attract new customers. If available and appropriate for you, consider shopping around for a better kWh price. This will not only reduce the cost of charging your Tesla, but it’ll also reduce the cost of running all of your household electric appliances.
It’s also worth noting that 50% of energy companies in the US offer Green energy, according to epa.gov. If you’re looking to reduce your carbon footprint even more, consider asking your energy provider about their Green energy plans.
