Home Charging Installation

The best place to charge your Tesla is at home, overnight. Plug in when you get home and wake up to a full charge for the day.

How do I install home charging equipment?
There are three main steps:

Step 1: Find an Electrician
Tesla has a network of recommended electricians who can provide an obligation- free quote, enter your zip code here to locate an installer in your area. If you plan to use your local electrician share our installation manuals.

Step 2: Review the quote

  • Ensure the charge rate makes sense relative to your on-board charger
  • Position the Wall Connector to reach your charge port located on the left rear taillight
  • Installation must comply with AS/NZ3000 wiring regulations
  • All works must be carried out by a licensed electrician

Step 3: Plan your Installation.

What home charging equipment is available?

How do I install charging in a multi-unit dwelling?
Multi-unit dwellings consist of apartments, any residence with shared common space, such as parking or electrical infrastructure. Your apartment may have a manager, strata committee, body corporate, or owner who should be informed of your planned charging installation.

We've created a Template letter to communicate the value of home charging for your building to ensure all stakeholders are aware of your planned purchase, and your plan to have home charging options.
