Is it a Canada thing to put a 40a breaker on it? Why not wire for 50a? I know the UMC with the car will only do 32a, but the Gen1 UMC or other manufacturers will support 40a charging on 50a circuit.Also, i got one electrician on site this morning, he will send me a quote later this weekend. He also said i can install the Tesla wall charger too; however, i might need to get the electric power report to get proof the ESA inspection which it will not overload the breaker. He think 14-50 is more enough for daily drive. I total agree.
Received another company quotation this morning:
Thank you for reaching out to us for your charging needs. Please find a link to your estimate located at the bottom of this email.
Please note that I've quoted you on the installation of the NEMA 14-50 receptacle as this setup will charge your car at the maximum charge rate available from your panel which is 48km/hr. There is no advantage to purchasing the Tesla Wall Connector.
These are the steps that will follow after you receive your estimate:
1.) Email back confirming your acceptance of the estimate
2.) Schedule an installation date with us
3. If you do not already have your NEMA 14-50 adaptor, please --> order it here <--
4.) We install your Level II Charger, which can be used immediately
