I have a new home with a 200 amp panel. My basement is unfinished and my panel is about 30-40 feet away from my garage. What is the cost to install the tesla charger in my garage for the maximum charge 48 ampers for my Tesla model S? I already have the tesla charger and I want it installed in the garage.

Hi there. Generally we have had Tesla chargers come in around the $1250-$1600 range.

That includes ESA permit and inspection as well as any disconnect switch if necessary in the garage.

All work comes with a 10yr warranty on labor. 1yr on parts and after that it's done through the manufacturer

There are a lot of variables to consider, especially with the Tesla charger; mainly if you require the additional disconnect, distance to the garage, working conditions, etc.

The minimum amount you can expect it $1200 (extremely basic install) but we have had installs that have been substantially more expensive then that.
