Tesla runs superchargers on solar powerIt looks like Tesla Motors will be taking its “green energy” initiative to the next stage. The Palo Alto-based automaker is building a network of Supercharger, store and service center in Rocklin, California, which will have photovoltaic cells to power the entire site, according to Green Car Reports.

The Supercharger site is 20 miles northeast of downtown Sacramento, and it will be the first Tesla Motors Inc location to run the entire site via solar energy. The entire roof top perimeter of the showroom and service center is installed with solar panels.

A local company, Phil Haupt Electric of Roseville, helped the all-electric carmaker set up the location. Phil Haupt Electric also has experience supplying equipment for electric vehicles (EVs).
