In some cases, you can purchase your home charger directly from a Tesla Certified Installer. When you schedule your installation, ask if this option is available.
We recommend scheduling your installation prior to your vehicle delivery; this allows you to start charging immediately once you’ve received your vehicle.
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.
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 power share, set access controls and get remote diagnostics in case something goes wrong.
