Checklist for a well-planned, safe installation at home

Installing a Tesla Wall Charger at home requires careful planning and consideration. As specialists in Tesla Wall Connector installations, we at ProSolar Australia have compiled essential tips and guidelines to help you make well-informed decisions for a seamless and safe installation process.

Choosing the right Tesla Wall Connector

Tesla Wall Connectors, specifically designed for Tesla’s EV range, are available in ‘Gen 2’ and ‘Gen 3’ models. Each offers unique features and pricing, with detailed comparisons available on Tesla’s website. Cable lengths vary, with options of 2.6m for Gen 2 and 7.3m for both models, ensuring flexibility for different parking setups.

Multiple Tesla owners

For households with more than one Tesla, consider installing multiple Tesla Wall Connectors. The Gen 3 model offers ‘power sharing’, allowing up to six units to distribute charging power efficiently among multiple vehicles.

Location considerations for installation

Selecting the ideal location for your Tesla Wall Connector is crucial. Consider the daily use of your Tesla, parking arrangements, and the car’s charge port location at the left-rear taillight. Ensure the charger is easily accessible and safe from potential hazards like heavy objects or traffic. Choose between indoor and outdoor setups, wall-mounted or pole-mounted solutions, depending on your space and requirements.

Understanding your electrical setup

Tesla Wall Connectors adapt to various power supplies. It’s vital to consult with a licensed electrician to assess your home’s electrical system and integrate the charger with existing setups, such as solar power systems.
