It says the NEMA 6-50 is supported on the outlets section of the Model S site however my rep said they only support 14-50 a few months ago when I signed my order form. I have an existing 6-50 outlet in my garage now is why I ask. Has anyone who has received a car used a 6-50 outlet?
If it is not supported does anyone know how difficult it is to change to a 14-50 outlet? Is it just an actual outlet change or is it different number of phases requiring a different amount of cables to be run? Sorry, I know next to nothing about this.
Also my outlet says 50A-250V vs the 40A-240V on the Tesla site. Is that OK or does it mean it is not compatible?
Thanks, its time to get an electrician to the house so I can make sure I am ready for my Tesla but I want to make sure I understand what to tell them to do.
