Referral Program

Our goal is to build the best clean energy products and help Tesla owners share their excitement and experiences with others. As an owner, with the Referral Program you’ll earn awards every time your referral link is used by your friends and family when they transition to sustainable energy and grow our community.

Orders for a Tesla car, solar panels and Solar Roof will need to be placed by accessing the Design Studio through your unique referral link for you both to earn referral awards. Note that referrals can't be added after an order is placed or at time of delivery and is not a code that is entered at time of purchase.

Download the Tesla app to start sharing your referral link and track the status of your awards in the Loot Box.

Cars
You and anyone using your referral link can each earn 1,000 miles of free Supercharging with the purchase of a new Tesla car — designed to be some of the safest cars on the road. Each car referral also gives you a chance to win a Model Y monthly or Roadster supercar quarterly. Owners who already have free Supercharging get two chances to win.

Solar
You and anyone using your referral link can each earn a $250 award after system activation for solar panels or Solar Roof to reduce reliance on the grid and produce clean solar energy.
