How do I install home charging equipment?
There are four steps to installing home charging equipment:
Step one: Find an Electrician
Enter your zip code here to find installers in your area. You’ll find local independent electricians, along with Tesla installation services, where available.
Step two: Request a quote
We recommend installing a Wall Connector on a 60 amp circuit in the parking space closest to your existing electrical infrastructure.
Many electricians now offer quotes online and by email, making it easy to obtain multiple quotes.
Step three: Order your Wall Connector
If you plan to hire an independent electrician, order your Wall Connector here.
When installing through Tesla, the Wall Connector will be included in your quote, no further action is required.
Step four: Schedule your installation
Forward the Wall Connector Order Shipment Confirmation email to your electrician and schedule your installation date directly.
If Tesla will be installing your Wall Connector, we will reach out to schedule as soon as the permits have been received.
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 standard electrical outlets as a backup charging option. Learn more about the Mobile Connector.
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.
