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. Watch the At Home: Solar Hardware video below!
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.
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
Once you have a quote from an electrician, order your Wall Connector online.
4. Schedule Your Installation
Forward the Wall Connector Order Shipment Confirmation email to your electrician and schedule your installation date directly.

How do I get electric vehicle charging installed at my apartment or condo?

Additionally, incentives may be available to you or your building property manager to alleviate cost, at the federal, state, county, municipal and utility levels. Check https://afdc.energy.gov/fuels/electricity.html for more information.
We offer the following templates to help get these conversations started with your building manager or HOA:
