    Any other owners second guess if their next car should be another Tesla?

    Installing Wall Connector is better than NEMA 14-50

    I also purchased the HPWC this past January when it was $550. I requested a refund from Tesla when the price was reduced to $400 and received a $150 refund on my credit card. I also qualified for the NJ PSE&G $1500 credit on my electric bill so I'm pretty happy but still waiting for my VIN number.

    Plan for Connecting Wall Charger 100+ Feet Away and Future Proofing Setup?

Since you plan on being in your house for decades you only want to do this once and have it done correctly...
