BP has ordered $100 million worth of Tesla Superchargers, Reuters reports. This reportedly comes as part of BP’s electric charging division’s plan to invest $1 billion in chargers across the U.S. by the end of the decade. It also gives Tesla a new way to make money.
“Selling our fast-charging hardware is a new step for us, and one we’re looking to expand,” Tesla’s head of charging infrastructure Rebecca Tinucci said in a statement.
We’ve certainly had our issues with Tesla and the bigoted monster who runs it, but if there’s one thing Tesla’s done right, it’s the Supercharger network. If other companies ordering their chargers from Tesla is what it takes to improve our nation’s infrastructure, we say go for it.
