    Is installing a charger in a condo worth the high cost?

    My quoted price was $5k (including a charger, permit, labor, etc). I'm hesitant since I live within a walking distance of superchargers and other public chargers. But my guess is they are pretty busy. (1) Is that price normal for an underground condo parking structure in LA? (2) The...

    Gen 3 Wall Connector BUT I don't have access to WIFI (Condo Garage)

    Hi All, I searched and searched but couldn't find the answer on this forum or google. If it is indeed here somewhere, but i've missed it, my apologies. So I took possession of my 2021 model 3 on December 18th, 2020 and installed the Gen 3 connector on that same day by a certified electrician...

    Apps/Solutions for sharing an Apt Charger

    Hi everyone - I've done a good amount of crawling the web to see if there are any good apps out there other than Plugshare/Chargepoint etc that require either making chargers viewable to the public or having a specific kind of charger, and have yet to find a good solution for those who have to...

    Condo charging options

    It's been a while since I searched so I thought I'd ask what condo charging options are available. I need something that's load balancing and takes care of billing and payment to the HOA. I'm aware of Evercharge and Chargepoint. Are there any newcomers? Does anyone have first hand reviews?

    Do I need a dedicated line when installing a 120V plug or are dedicated lines only for 240V?

    I live in a condo with a personal parking spot in a shared parking garage. I had an electrician do a site assessment and since my parking spot is around 400 ft away from the power vault (also I need scanning, drilling, permits, etc), the total cost can get very pricey. Since there is power all...

    Finally got approval to install charger at my condo!

    This week I received final approval from my condominium association board of trustees to install an EV charger for my Model S. It took me nearly a year to get to this point, so it is very gratifying to be able to say this. I am not yet done, of course, because installation still lies ahead...

    Finally got a taste of daily charging

    I live in a condo and have been unable, so far, to arrange to charge there. (Working on it, though.) So I rely on public chargers and Superchargers. Sometimes it has been an inconvenient time-waster, especially in winter. It has not colored my appreciation of the Tesla, but it has reduced my...

    Turned down for charger by condo association

    Today I received an email from my condo association board, advising me of their position on proposals I had submitted to them for charging my Model S. In essence, they turned me down. I asked for permission to install a 240 V outlet in a space in a common garage. The spaces are assigned to...
