    I want to pitch to my work about getting a destination charger. What costs does Tesla cover for this? Just the price if the charger, or do they cover the installation as well? Can other EVs use these chargers via adapter?

    I have heard of places where Tesla only provided the chargers, and the host had to install them. I have heard of other places where Tesla covered everything. It probably partly depends on how helpful they think a charger at your location would be; your workplace would have to contact Tesla to find out.

    There is a 3rd-party adapter available that allows other EVs to charge at a Tesla Destination Charger. But at some locations Tesla donates a J1772 charger in addition to their own charger. Again, it probably depends on the importance of the location.

    Short on details. I believe the program has been cut back from the early days. Now that more charging exists it isn’t as important for Tesla to fund it.

    I’m not sure they cover anything (now?) for a private company where it’s not accessible to the public. Did they ever?

    So does your employer offer free gasoline to employees?
    I didn't think so.
    This free charging thing is only temporary.

    If you want everyone to have access, install a J-1772. Teslas are only good for Teslas.
