For new electric vehicles, the on-board charger capacity is matched to the vehicle battery. This means that charger can only accept power at its' maximum capacity. For instance, the Tesla Model 3 with a standard battery can only accept a maximum of 32 amps, you wouldn't hurt anything by plugging it into a Tesla Wall Connector that's wired for 50 amps but the car won't charge any faster since the battery doesn't have the ability to accept more than 32 amps at a time.
Car Charger Rebate Program through Austin Energy
We have installed many car charging stations from Teslas’s own station to GE to Leviton. All systems require their own dedicated circuit and usually run on 240 volts. Amperages can vary. The Tesla station has dipswitches that allow you to adjust the amperage based on the car and the available power. To install a car charger we’ll need to know what type of power you need and the distance from the main panel to the location you want the charging station. Some models require a receptacle to plug the station into. Also, we’ll need to know the NEMA configuration of that receptacle as well.
