Tesla Charger Installation In Watertown, South Dakota.
We provide safe and professional installation of Tesla EV charging systems

The installation of a Tesla EV charger, whether in a residential home, garage, or business premises, demands a high level of expertise that only a professional electrician can deliver.

The process begins with an evaluation of the existing electrical system to determine if it can accommodate the additional load that the Tesla charger, typically a high-powered wall connector, will demand. This analysis might reveal a need to upgrade the electrical panel to ensure a steady and safe power supply.

Once the capacity of the electrical system is confirmed, the electrician identifies an ideal location for the charger, often in a garage or close to the parking space. The selected spot should minimize the length of the charging cord while avoiding potential tripping hazards. The electrician then proceeds to install a dedicated 240-volt circuit from the electrical panel to the chosen charger location.

Depending on the specific site and local electrical codes, this may involve running conduit, drilling holes, and wiring. After connecting the Tesla charger to the new circuit, the electrician performs a comprehensive test to ensure the charger works flawlessly and safely. Even though Tesla provides comprehensive installation guides, it is crucial to enlist the services of a licensed electrician to ensure a correct, safe, and code-compliant installation

Some Frequently Asked Questions About Tesla Car Chargers

Does my Tesla come with a home charger?

The answer is yes and no.  Every Tesla does come with a mobile level 1 or tier 1 charger.  This is a simple cord that can be plugged into a standard 120 volt outlet.   The downside to this system is that it takes a lot longer to charge your vehicle.  We recommend purchasing and installing a Tesla Wall Connector or a level 2 charger.  This will charge your vehicle in much less time and will be a more convenient solution.

How fast will a Tesla home charger recharge my car’s battery?

That can depend on a few things but generally a Level 2 Tesla home charger will provide about 45-50 miles of drive distance per hour of charging.  There are other factors that can affect your charge rate.  These include which specific model of Tesla you own and the actual electrical output of your home’s breaker panel.  Some homes may need a service upgrade or a panel upgrade to get the most out of their Tesla wall charging unit.

How Much Does It Cost To Install A Tesla Car Charger?

That's a tough question to answer without knowing the specifics about your home or buildings electrical system.  For a short answer it's likely going to cost somewhere between $1000 to $3000+ for the charging unit, hardware, and the labor for installation.  There are however, many factors that can affect the cost.

  • Does your current electrical panel have the capacity needed?
  • Do you need new runs of wiring installed?
  • Do you need to increase the service amperage of your breaker panel?

The cost of the Tesla wall charging unit itself and the hardware are generally a fixed cost but it's the labor to install the charger where you want it, and any upgrades that might need to be completed on your electrical system that are currently unknown.  To give you an accurate price for your Tesla wall charger installation we'll need to do an on-site estimate.
