    It looks like it takes at least 3 weeks to get the charger due to high demand. I started to check the installers to get ready for my X75D delivery in August. Tesla site had multiple installers and I contacted Main Stream Electric and Anthony Lewis Inc. for quotes based on the review they got.

    Who did you used and were you happy at the end? I don't want to be taken advantage of just because it is a Tesla Charger.

    Any comments would be appreciated.

    Just use a local electrician. Truthfully you only need a 14-50 plug...no reason for the wall charger in my opinion. It will max out at 40amps, so you'll charge at about 26 miles per hour which will get you up to a full charge every night.

    I have mine set to start charging at 11:05pm when PGE's rates go down (ask for their EV-A rate) to about $.11-.12 / KwH. Btw, call PG&E with your VIN before delivery because it takes them a full billing cycle to change your rate.

    Thank you. That will be my other option. Wall charger is just convenient to have without getting the other charging cable from the frunk.

    I didn't hear back from any of the installers yet.

    Thanks
