Who Should I Hire to Connect My New Tesla & Will a New Home Car Charging Station Require a Major Electrical Re-Wiring?
Consider this: Why take a risk with an un-certified 0r even an unqualified local electrician with your brand new vehicle? Isn’t it a big investment worthwhile of proper care? Oftentimes, it’s just the owner of a business who has a certification and their uncertified workers are the ones doing the installation. But, at Divine Electric, every technician and manager is Tesla Certified, which means the proper training and certification ensures every EV home charger installation is completed according to Tesla’s high standards:
- Compliance with all local and national electric code installation requirements.
- Home electrical load calculated to ensure safe and reliable installations.
- Consistent, 5-star customer reviews.
- Reporting of all completed Tesla charging projects back to Tesla’s database.
How Fast Do I Want My Tesla to Charge?
A faster charge doesn’t cost any more than a slower charger with regards to your Pacific Gas & Electric bills. Tesla’s vehicles can recharge by using your choice of two Tesla’s charging units: the Mobile Connector, which recharges at speeds of 20-30 miles per hour (32 Amp maximum /240 Volt) and their Wall Connector, which recharges at speeds of 44-52 miles per hour (80Amp maximum /240 Volt). Consider the distance of your daily commute and driving activitie and then how long you’re willing to wait for the vehicle to recharge.
Check out the Tesla Charging Chart for their estimated charging speeds using the Wall Connector:
Is My Home Properly Able to Support a Tesla (or Any Other Electric Vehicle)?
We properly evaluate your home’s electrical system by completing a home load calculation to ensure the reliability of your home and new vehicle’s power supply needs. If an electrical panel upgrade is required, our technicians will provide you with an instant quote for the added investment. We don’t want you to plug your new vehicle in only to find other problems with your electrical wiring in your home. We’re not just your home car charging station installer, we’re still you’re local electrician. Beyond a proper electrical system, most electric vehicle owners consider adding a surge protection unit to the home’s electrical panel. A surge protection unit offers 24/7 protection against harmful voltage entering the home and vehicle during winter storms, falling trees, and electrical grid maintenance. It’s probably in your interest to invest of one of those too while you’re at it.
