    Easy,

    1. park or don't park your Tesla in your garage.
    2. snap a photo of your charger setup in your garage
    3. comment on what you did and why
    4. discuss

    I've just refinished my garage and I'm looking for inspiration for my charging setup, myself.

    Closest spot where the cable is out of the way. Also put a docking station for my bike rack underneath. Had to move my kayak a bit in case it droppped it didn’t hit my charger

    Do outdoor garages count? :D We have a 75 ft (23 m) run on a 100A breaker to dual HPWCs. Each car can charge at up to 72A, and will share/split the total available 80A. A 12 kW photovoltaic system offsets the power usage pretty well.

    I took my UMC and installed a 14-50 on the ceiling and suspended my charge cord setup because I'm an insane person.

    Two, load sharing wall chargers, one for the S and one for the 3. They share a 100 amp circuit. A later picture would show that there's now a SolarEdge inverter on the wall next to the chargers, which is part of a 10k rooftop solar array.

    Love this especially for us winter climate folks. I did. It have the foresight to think about this when I installed my HPWC. Now, in the winter my cable sits in a pile of snow/sludge and I have to manually wrap the cable while wearing a suit. I will post pics of my set up later.

    Anyone with a condo setup care to share a pic with an explanation as to how they went on in regards to the installation process? Just moved into a condo with a fairly large underground parking area and my delivery is most likely in the 1st week of September. Thanks!

    Do you mean for ease of setup, or to try an entice the building owner/manager into allowing the addition?

    I have no worries that they will not allow us to install, we ate quite good friends. I am just more concerned about getting the actual charger in the underground parking. There's actually many normal wall outlets down there for e-scooters, but I'd like a HPWC to increase charging speeds.

    I strongly advise against eating your good friends.

    Depending on where the power panel is, it shouldn’t be very difficult. Any competent electrician can run cable to a place near a parking space and mount a HPWC to it.

    I’ll try to dig up the video of a HPWC install on the Now You Know YouTube channel when I get home.

    Wife got tired of the wire across the floor, so I mounted an industrial swing arm on the wall and now it's out of the way...
    Bonus is that the arm is pre-wired for a 110 outlet and I can mount lights on top of the arm in the future.

    Regarding Zero Emissions - doesn't Texas have a lot of coal generation? A Tesla in a place like Quebec is zero emissions, but Texas?
