Why is a permit and inspection necessary?

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. The average NEMA 14-50 installation is between $1,000-$2,000, however it’s important to note that every installation is custom to the home. Depending on your length of wire run. If you want the charging station or charging unit to be right next to the panel the cost will be lower. If you need an extra run of wire and other modifications that cost might add up.
The price for 50 AMP circuit real close to thhe panel $550.00
which does include our permit inspection with the city
$750.00 for across the garage

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; however this is less common for 50 amp circuit installations. Plan ahead if you have a more complicated installation, such as trenching to a detached garage.
