Correct. Model 3 on order and I recently started working from home which I anticipate will use more energy.

Yes, you will use more energy at home, but I suspect you will save more than that amount of energy by foregoing the commute (unless your commute was very short).

Actually I'm currently driving a Ford Escape hybrid which will be passed down, while the wife typically drives the Leaf and we share it on the weekends. So we're adding 1 more EV later this year. (waiting on Model 3 AWD info prior to pulling the trigger)

Are you trying to say that the Ford Escape hybrid doesn't consume energy when you commuted to work in it?

I'm saying that I will be using more electricity by adding another EV to the household. The Escape is a gasser.

Although I work from home I still intend on driving it about 6000 miles/year.
