Tesla offers a few different Level 2 charging options based on your specific needs and requirements. When determining which charging method it is important to consider how much you plan on driving and how long you plan on living at your current residence, your budget, and if you are considering another Tesla vehicle in the future.

The first Level 2 charging option is the NEMA14-50 outlet:

Part Cost: $35 for adapter from Tesla Permit fee: $100-$150

Installation Cost: $795-$2000

Benefits: Lower cost and less of an investment if you plan on moving soon.

Drawback: Charging speed is about 10 miles an hour less than wall connector. Mobile connector used in garage and must be unplugged and put back in your car if you want to bring it along your trip.

Recommendation: This is the best option if you are budget conscious, don’t drive your Tesla very often, or if you plan on moving soon.

Tesla wall connector:

Part Cost: $500 from Tesla

Permit fee: $100-$150 Installation Cost: $795-$2000

Benefits: Fastest LVL 2 method for charging your Tesla vehicle, mobile charger stays in your car. Drawback: High Cost, mobility if you are moving to another address.

Recommendation: By far the best option to receive the most amount of miles per charge.

Load sharing with multiple Tesla vehicles:

Part Cost: $500 from Tesla multiplied by how many cars you need chargers for.

Permit fee: $100-$150 Installation Cost: $1500-$4000

Benefits: Fastest LVL 2 method for charging multiple Tesla vehicles, mobile charger stays in your car. Drawback: High Cost, mobility if you are moving to another address.

Recommendation: The wiring, breaker and wiring method are completely different for installing one wall charger as opposed to multiple chargers with load sharing. I highly recommend letting us know if you plan on multiple vehicles so we can prepare our installation for the additional capacity.
