Hundreds of electrical projects completed with passion and care toward our customer’s needs​

When the very first Tesla home chargers hit the market in late 2012, they were seen as an unrealistic and impractical investment for the average homeowner. As Tesla’s innovative technology was introduced to everyday consumers, the electric vehicles’ home charging stations were expensive, with a complicated installation process. As the brand’s technology has developed throughout the last decade, Tesla’s home chargers have become more accessible to the average consumer, with the process of installing a home charger being easier and more cost-effective than ever before. Are you a Tesla owner looking to install a home charging station? Here’s everything you need to know!

Benefits of a Tesla Home Charging Station

If you are lucky enough to own a Tesla, installing a home charging station has many benefits. A few of the many reasons to consider making this investment include:


A home charger allows you to charge your electronic vehicle from the comfort of your home whenever you want. This means no more waiting around for your vehicle to charge at a public station. Plus, home chargers will charge your vehicle faster than a regular power outlet that you would find at a public charging station. 


The cost of using public charging stations can add up over time. While installing a home charger might seem expensive upfront, you can expect to save a considerable amount of money on the cost of charging your vehicle in the long run.

Added Safety

Ensure that your vehicle is charged and ready to drive before heading out the door by charging your vehicle from the comfort of your own home!

The Cost of a Tesla Charging Station

The cost of a home charging station for your Tesla can vary depending on the type of charger you install. There are three different kinds of Tesla home charging stations:
