As a homeowner, the purchase of a new Tesla is an exciting time. One potential challenge when purchasing a Tesla is able to charge it. If you cannot charge your Tesla at your own home, it can be challenging to get around and enjoy your new purchase. As a business owner, the addition of a Tesla Charging Station can be a powerful tool in attracting customers and growing your business. As more of the population switches to electric vehicles, it has become increasingly beneficial for companies of all sizes to add Tesla Charging ports to continue to cater to their customers.

We believe that quality services, provided by highly trained and skilled Union Electricians, are key to delivering the best product we can for our customers. Our experienced electricians offer Electric Vehicle charger installation in Tacoma, Puyallup, Sumner, Bonney Lake, and Lake Tapps.
Tesla Gen 2 Mobile Connector Bundle
There are several options when it comes to quality installation in your private residence so that you can charge your electric vehicle from the comfort of your own home. We can install the Tesla Gen 2 Mobile Connector Bundle, which is compatible with a 120 v outlet and is best for families who drive less than 30 miles per day.
If you need faster charging for more miles gained per hour, the installation of a NEMA 14-50 outlet in your garage will give you the ability to charge your Tesla as quickly as 30 miles gained per hour. This outlet is compatible with the Gen 2 Mobile Connector with the Gen 2 NEMA Adaptor, which can be purchased directly from Tesla.
Tesla Wall Connector
The fastest and most convenient option for your new Tesla Electric Vehicle is the Tesla Wall Connector. The Tesla Wall Connector is the quickest home charging solution and can charge your electric vehicle in as little as 7 hours, almost 50 percent faster than the NEMA 14-50 option above. The Tesla Wall Connector can also charge multiple electric vehicles at the same time.
Our highly skilled technicians are trained to install all of these options for your home electric vehicle charging station. By going through Tapps Electric and working with our qualified electricians, you can have peace of mind knowing that the job will be done right. We believe that getting the job done the first time correctly is the best way to ensure the longevity of your vehicle’s charging capabilities as well as the success of your home charging unit.
Common Issues due to poor installation at Private Residence
Issues such as lack of power coming from the breaker panel, faults with the wall connector, ground fault circuit interruption due to a dangerous current path, and more are all common issues with home charging stations if not installed correctly. High Temperatures, power shortages to your Tesla, and permanent problems to your Tesla’s Charging port can also occur if the electrical work is not done correctly. Hiring Qualified Technicians with the proper training and testimonials can help eliminate these issues.
Commercial Charging Stations
Hiring knowledgeable and competent electricians to install your business’s charging station is essential. Technicians should understand the needs of Tesla owners in Washington state and also be able to understand the needs of growing companies. An increasing amount of drivers are focusing on being environmentally conscious by making the switch to electric vehicles. In 2020, there were more than 1.1 million all-electric vehicles on the road. In 2016, the number was just 300,000. As the number of electric cars continues to soar, consumers will be increasingly motivated to head to commercial lots with charging stations.
Charging stations add a significant amount of value to a commercial property. By installing a Tesla Charging Station, you open your business up to new potential customers who need that resource. If your business is ready to reap the rewards of catering to electric vehicles, it is time to make the leap and install a Tesla Charging Station.
What to know before you hire an electrician
Before you hire an electrician to install your EV charging station for you, there are several vital things you should note when deciding who to hire. The first is; is your electrician qualified? Do they offer Tesla charging station installation as a part of their routine services? Do they consistently offer commercial charging installations in addition to home EV installations, which is more common? Does the electrician you are hiring have testimonials to back up their work? If you are hiring a well-qualified electrician, the answer to all of these questions should be yes.
An added benefit of installing a Tesla charging station at your business is that your business will show up in every Tesla car as a charging destination. While the investment may seem like a hurdle to overcome, the added benefit and attraction of having a Tesla charging station at your commercial property are astounding.
In order to install a Tesla charging station at a commercial site, you must apply to be a charging partner on Tesla’s website and then work with a licensed electrician to install the station. To make the process as smooth as possible, commercial businesses should make sure to hire electricians who understand the voltage requirements of a commercial charging station and should have experience installing Tesla Wall Connectors.
