There is no doubt that Tesla produces some of the most attractive, reliable and performance driven EVSE on the market today. Their Model S for instance can go from 0 to 60 in just 2.5 seconds and has full autopilot capabilities while their Model 3 has up to 220 miles of range on a single charge, more than twice that of a Nissan Leaf. That last point is important because charging a Tesla can be a bit of a challenge since the company uses a proprietary plug that can’t be used with standard Level 1, 2 or 3 EV Charging Station without an adapter. The Tesla Wall Connector is actually inside the vehicle for AC Charging. The company is aggressively building out what it calls its “Supercharger Network” (Supercharger (DC) bypasses the AC Onboard Charger/Inverter) but as of this writing that network is composed of a mere 600 charging stations in North America. So your best bet to ensure your Tesla is always properly charged in Ontario is to have a Tesla Wall Connector Installation performed by EVdirect.
Why Have EVdirect Perform Your Tesla Wall Connector Installation?
Tesla sells chargers for their EV Charging Station through their website. These High Powered Wall Connectors or HPWCs as they’re called come with all the components you need to set up an efficient charging station in your garage or in your business’ car park. Installing such a station however, is not a DIY job under any circumstances and may involve the installation of a panel if you don’t have an empty circuit within reach. The highly trained and licensed electricians at EVdirect are fully capable of performing whatever augmentations are necessary to the electrical system of your home or business in order to facilitate the Tesla Wall Connector installation.
More Affordable Than You Think
While the cost of installing the standard Tesla HPWC charging station at home isn’t exactly cheap it’s not prohibitively expensive either. And it should be remembered that operating an electric vehicle is typically much cheaper per mile than operating a standard internal combustion engine vehicle. So if you use your Tesla on a regular basis the installation should pay for itself in just a few short months. Installing a Tesla Supercharger in your home is another story altogether and one with no reasonable outcome, since achieving the power requirements would be virtually impossible. So stick to the standard Tesla HPWC installed by EVdirect and use the Supercharger network when you head out on your epic road trip.
The standard Tesla HPWC will allow you to fully charge in roughly 3.5 to 4 hours and comes with an 8 1/2 foot or 24 foot tether. If you choose to have the HPWC installed outdoors EVdirect can certainly do that for you though there will be some additional charges for the requisite weatherproof equipment.
If you have recently purchased or plan to purchase a Tesla EVSE make sure to contact EVdirect and have us install the Tesla Wall Connector Installation HPWC for you. We’ll make the process as simple as possible and you’ll rest assured knowing the installation was done right.
