How do I install home charging equipment?
There are three steps to installing home charging equipment:
Step one: Request a quote for installation.
In select states Tesla is available to install your home charging equipment, or you can hire an independent electrician.
- New Hampshire
- New Jersey
- New York
- Rhode Island
Tesla also works with local independent electricians who can install your home charging equipment. Learn more about how to find an electrician.
Step two: Approve the quote.
You may want to get two to three installation quotes. The quote should include detail on the following items:
- Desired installation hardware (Wall Connector or 240 volt outlet)
- Circuit breaker/power level
- Any additional electrical system upgrades, if necessary
- Permit and inspection, where applicable
If you decide to have Tesla install your home charging system, we will bring the Wall Connector on the day of installation. You will need to order your own Wall Connector if you decide to hire an independent electrician.
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:
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 included with all new vehicles as standard equipment. Use this connector cable to plug into various 110 volt or 240 outlets as a backup charging option.

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.
Tesla has years of experience working with property managers and recommending solutions that meet the needs of each stakeholder. For additional information, contact us at HomeCharging@Tesla.com.
