Congratulations on purchasing an electric car!
We can install your electric vehicle charger at your home for increased cost savings and convenience.
Now that you’ve joined the ranks of environmentally conscious and smart consumers everywhere, make sure you’re fully enjoying the electric vehicle experience. Make sure to contact us to install your electric vehicle charging station in your own home. Penna Electric provides a wide variety of reliable home EV chargers from the industry’s most trusted brands including Bosch, ClipperCreek, EV-Box, GE, Leviton, and Schneider Electric.
Installing a home electric vehicle (ev) charger can reduce your carbon footprint and reduce your charging costs by having the flexibility to conveniently charge your vehicle during utility off-peak hours.
Electric Vehicle Charger Installation Service for Your Home
In addition to a reduction in your carbon footprint and saving on charging costs, there are multiple benefits to installing a 240-volt EV car charger in your home. A 240-circuit can be installed with anywhere from a 15 to 100 amp circuit breaker, providing significantly faster recharge speeds compared to a 110-volt household outlet. Most EV owners install a 240-volt circuit with 30, 40, or 50 amp circuit breakers.
Your new electric vehicle and in-home EV charger will allow you to plug in each evening to wake up to a full battery every morning. Many EV owners top off their vehicle battery for a few hours each evening. You can relax knowing that your 240-volt EV car charger will fully charge your vehicle in just a few hours.

Home Charging Installation Service for Your Tesla
Tesla recommends charging your Tesla vehicle overnight, just like your mobile phone. Pull into your garage, plug in, and you will wake up to a full charge the next morning. Even better, electricity will only be a fraction of the cost of gasoline.
To prepare your home for charging, hire an electrician from Penna Electric to install a dedicated circuit conveniently near where you will park your Tesla vehicle. The charge port is located in the driver side rear taillight. As with any home improvement project involving the electrical system, a permit and city or county inspection may be required. We can check with your city to see if one is required before we begin work.
Model S and Model X include the following charging accessories as standard equipment:
- Mobile Connector (20 feet)
- Adapter for standard 120 volt household outlets (NEMA 5-15)
- Adapter for higher power 240 volt outlet (NEMA 14-50)
- Adapter for public charging stations (SAE J1772)
The Mobile Connector and adapters are used to plug into various types of electrical outlets and can provide a maximum of 40 amps to a vehicle. Your delivery orientation specialist will review this hardware with you when you pick up your vehicle. To charge with the standard equipment, you must install a 240 volt NEMA 14-50 outlet at home which can be done by the electricians at Penna Electric.
When preparing to charge at home, there are two primary options Tesla owners choose from:
- Install a 240 volt outlet, called a NEMA 14-50. Use the Mobile Connector included with your vehicle to plug into this outlet.
- Install a Tesla Wall Connector for faster charging and more convenience. Order a Wall Connector from the online shop or your local service center.
While electrical repairs do require the knowledge and experience of a professional electrician, there are numerous ways you can help to properly maintain the electrical system in your home in order to prevent damage and keep things running smoothly.
