Order Equipment

Once you have reviewed your equipment options and consulted with your installer, you should visit Tesla Shop to order your home charging equipment prior to scheduling your installation and vehicle delivery.

Some Tesla Certified Installers can provide the Wall Connector as part of the installation. When you schedule your installation, ask if this option is available.

Install Charging

We recommend scheduling your installation prior to your vehicle delivery; this allows you to start charging immediately once you’ve received your vehicle. Check if you have incentives available to help cover the cost of installation.

Installation can take up to several hours, depending on the configuration of your charging setup. Always test your home charging equipment with your installer to ensure it’s working properly.

Plug In and Charge

After installation, you can enjoy the full benefits of Tesla home charging.

With a Wall Connector and its Wi-Fi connectivity, you can control and manage charging through the Tesla app, even for non-Tesla electric vehicles. You also can see charging stats, set access controls and get remote diagnostics in case something goes wrong.

With a Mobile Connector, you will need to use your vehicle touchscreen and Tesla app to manage and control charging.
