EV Home Charging Stations
Please see the below questions that will help us
provide a more accurate estimate.

Please note: depending on the actual distance from the panel and access, cost is subject
to the amount of wire needed. Also, each city has its own permitting costs and inspection
requirements that may affect the total cost. Drywall patch and paint is not covered in our
estimate and would be done by others.

1- What is your address?
2- Is your electrical panel in the garage?
3- Where would you like the TWC/NEMA 14-50 installed? Right next to the panel or in
another location?
4- Is there attic access directly over the garage?
5- Can you please send pictures of your electrical panel where we can clearly see the
numbers on the breaker handles and the panel schedule, if it is labeled.
6- Do you know if you want the NEMA 14-50 for the Tesla Mobile Connector? Or, will you be
purchasing the Tesla Wall Connector (TWC)?
Thanks again for reaching out to us. We look forward to hearing back from you.

Why is a permit and inspection necessary?

In order for you to modify the electrical panel of a home a permit and inspection from your local building department is required. These requirements are designed to ensure safe and code compliant electrical installations for both yourself and your neighbors. The permit will also make local utilities aware of growing electric vehicle ownership in the area, allowing ample time to plan ahead for any infrastructure upgrades for the community. 

When should I install home charging?
We recommend installing home charging shortly after ordering your Tesla vehicle. Some installations, such as detached garages or electrical system upgrades, will require longer lead times. Installing the electrical equipment ahead of time will ensure you are prepared to charge at home when taking delivery of your vehicle.

How much does it cost to install charging equipment?​

Depending on the scope of work.

Some minor drywall removal is required when running new wiring to the side of the panel. Depending on what city you are in there may be added cost for permit and inspection fees. Cities like McKinney and Frisco require a licensed electrician to be onsite for the electrical inspection. The permit and inspection fees, for cities that require an electrician to be onsite, are set by the city.

It’s important to note that every installation is custom to the home. Depending on your length of wire run and other modifications that cost might add up. Distance is an important factor; an installation which is 100 feet away from the electrical panel will be more expensive than an installation 10 feet away.

Some homes may need a utility upgrade. Plan ahead if you have a more complicated installation, such as trenching to a detached garage.

Whole House Surge Installation
The threat of a power outage in McKinney TX is always looming over your head, but what you might not know are the dangers that come from voltage surges. Faults or fires in main transformers and generating equipment can cause disruptions to homes’ electricity supplies–risking lives every day as they try desperately wait out these blackouts with nothing else available! Additionally brownouts happen when there’s been an interruption on our electrical circuits which causes low voltage.

Power Surges happen so frequently due in large part because there are many different factors which can contribute towards them: Faults with main transformers/generating equipment; fires during brownouts when restoration comes instantaneously without warning – leading directly into surges

There are many different types of whole-house surge protectors available, so it’s important to know the difference between them. Some can shield individual items from power spikes while others provide protection for all your electronics in general—but not just what is hooked up directly through an outlet!

Installing an whole house surge protector is imperative for any home with expensive electronics they want to protect.

ABR Electric recommends the Siemens FS140 Whole House Surge Protection. watch the video and check out our Youtube channel for more electrician recommendations
