On this job, the homeowner required additional power to run a new 60 amp Tesla EV charger in Chestermere, Alberta.
The customer currently only had one hundred amps of power coming into his garage and with his current usage, the additional load would push him over the available power of his electrical system.
As part of being recommended by Tesla, we performed a service load calculation. This is a calculation of the total power you consume with all the electrical alliances throughout your home. We can then work out the maximum amount of power we can give you without overloading your panel.
Panel Upgrade Experts were recommended by Tesla to do the work for the client. We both upgraded the incoming power and installed the Gen 3 high-power wall connector.
The job entailed removing the old electrical meter socket and mast and reinstalling with a 200-amp electrical panel.
We found the flashing was not installed correctly, as you can see in the picture. The metal flashing should be underneath the upper row of shingles which will cause potential electrical issues in the future, so this was fixed while we did the installation.
Enmax was scheduled to disconnect power at 8 a.m. which they did right on time, ready for the electrical panel upgrade in Chestermere. They reconnected power once the service mast and panel was complete.
After this, we proceeded to install the Gen 3 Tesla high-powered wall connector. We install the gen 3 wall connector on a mat black mounting board to show off the glass front Tesla EV charger.
Once the Tesla charger was installed we calibrated the charger to 60 amps, this gives the maximum amount of power to the customer.
The calibration takes place over Wi-Fi connection and the wall connector is directly connected to the internet for future updates.
The customer was happy with the installation commenting on how neat and tidy the installation was and how clean the garage was left after installation.
