Home Charging Installation

The best place to charge your Tesla is at home, overnight. Plug in when you get home and wake up to a full charge every morning. Charge your car from the sun and drive on sunshine by adding solar panels to power your home.

How do I install home charging equipment?
There are four steps to installing home charging equipment:

1. Find an Electrician
Enter your zip code in the Tesla Find an Electrician tool to locate installers in your area. You’ll find local independent electricians, along with Tesla installation services (in available areas).

If you already have an electrician you would like to work with, please direct them to the latest Wall Connector installation guide for a seamless experience.

2. Request a Quote
We recommend installing the 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.

3. Order Your Wall Connector
If you plan to hire an independent electrician, you can order your Wall Connector online.

When installing through Tesla, the Wall Connector will be included in your quote, and no further action is required.

4. 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 an installation date as soon as the permits have been received.

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.
