Tesla Model Y Home Charging Guide

tesla model Y charging at home

Charging your Tesla Model Y at home is easy and cost-effective. With our wide range of Smart Home EV charging stations, you can simply plug in overnight and wake up to a fully charged car, ready to hit the road. This guide delves into a comprehensive suite of home charging solutions, designed to seamlessly integrate with your Tesla Model Y in the comfort of your home.

Different Types of Home Chargers for Tesla Model Y

There are 3 main types of electric car home chargers:

1. Dumb Chargers (Granny/Trickle Chargers): Slow, portable chargers, are not recommended for long charging sessions due to safety concerns. Click here for more on Granny Chargers.

2. Basic Plug and Play Chargers: Faster than Granny Chargers, but lack features like mobile apps and solar charging options.

3. Smart Home Chargers: The best option! They offer:

  • Mobile app control for monitoring, scheduling, and starting/stopping charging.
  • Solar power charging prioritization for a greener solution (on some models).
  • Faster charging speeds compared to other options.

Choosing the Right Smart Home Charger

Here are some key factors to consider:

  • Australian Standards: Make sure the charger meets all relevant safety regulations.
  • Solar Compatibility: Choose a charger with “Solar Optimisation” if you have solar panels.
  • Features: Consider features like adjustable charging current, RFID card access, and cloud data tracking.

We Recommend These Smart Home Chargers (all compatible with Tesla Model Y):

Our recommended Smart Home Chargers feature the Type 2 connector, enabling AC charging at home for not only Tesla Model Ys but also any electric car equipped with a Type 2 connection.

Important Note: Universal Standard Since 2020

Since the beginning of 2020, all EVs sold in Australia must follow the Type 2(Mennekes) connector for AC charging & Combined charging system(CCS2) connector for DC charging. This means compatibility is likely for most Teslas sold after January 1st, 2020.

However, if your Tesla Model Y was delivered before January 1st, 2020, it’s recommended to double-check your charging connector type. You can usually find this information in your owner’s manual or by visually inspecting the charging port on your vehicle.
