Preparing my garage to charge a Tesla Roadster

14 05 2011

Can anyone guess what this orange cable is and why it is routed to my garage? Well, since I’m currently renovating the basement in my house; I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to run a 30amp cable to my garage to allow quicker charging of an electric car!

Curious what the difference in charge is? With a standard 3 prong household plug, the Tesla Roadster would take 48 hours to charge – but with this cable installed (and hooked up to the proper breaker) will allow me to charge the supercar in 10 hours from empty to full!

The job isn’t complete yet – but I will post more pictures when it is! 🙂
