Home Charging

The most convenient place to charge your Tesla is at home, overnight. Plug in when you get home and let your car charge while you sleep. You no longer need to take trips to the pump with a gas-powered vehicle, and you can utilize low overnight utility pricing during off-peak hours, saving both time and money.


Home Charging Options

We recommend a Wall Connector as the most dynamic home charging solution. However, there are a variety of options to suit your lifestyle and driving needs.

Installation Process and Cost

Process

We recommend installing your home charging equipment prior to taking delivery of your vehicle. Most installations will take a few hours, but finding and scheduling an electrician can take up to two weeks.

Follow these steps to successfully install home charging equipment in your home:

A straightforward installation can range from $500 - $1,500. However, if there are additional items needed to complete your installation, the price will be adjusted accordingly.

Installation Resources

Your electrician can visit the Wall Connector Support page for further information on how to install a Wall Connector.

Installation manuals and troubleshooting information for Tesla charging products can also be found on the Charging and Adapter Product Guides page.

Apartments and Condos

Note: Always make sure you have approval to install home charging.

Increasingly, condos and apartment buildings are required by law to allow EV charging. Installing charging makes business sense, and the case will only get stronger as more people buy electric vehicles.

Additionally, incentives may be available to you or your building property manager to alleviate cost, at the federal, state, county, municipal and utility levels. Home charging related incentives can be found at the U.S. Department of Energy Alternative Fuels Data Center.

We offer the following templates to help get these conversations started with your building manager or HOA:
