How do I install home charging equipment?
There are three steps to installing home charging equipment:
Step one: Request a quote for installation.
Tesla works with local independent electricians who can install your home charging equipment. Learn more about the electricians providing services in your market. You can tell your Owner Adviser or Delivery Specialist about which electrician you would like to get the quote from, or simply let them decide for you.
Step two: Approve the quote.
The quote should include detail on the following items:
- Circuit breaker/power level
- Distance of cable run
- Any additional electrical system upgrades, if necessary
- Permit and inspection, where applicable
If you decide to proceed the installation, notify your Delivery Specialist to ship the Wall Connector to your home. Installation can be scheduled after the quote is approved.
Step three: Schedule installation.
We recommend scheduling installation as soon as possible, as delivery dates can vary.
What home charging equipment is available?
There are two connector options:
The Wall Connector is included with all new vehicles as standard equipment. Tesla recommends the Wall Connector as the most dynamic home charging hardware for Model S, Model X and Model 3. Customizable to almost any power supply, the Wall Connector will provide faster charging speeds and the most convenience for home charging.

The Mobile Connector is an alternative charging equipment if Wall Connector installation is not yet available.

Different Tesla cars have different charging capabilities. Learn more about the onboard charger.
How do I install charging in a multi-unit dwelling?
Multi-unit dwellings consist of apartments, condominiums and any residence with shared common space, such as parking or electrical infrastructure. Your apartment or condominium may have a board, manager or owner who should be informed of your planned charging installation.
We've created a template 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.
