Charging at work

Harrison 5 years ago updated by Birdman 4 years ago 4


Most of my charging will take place at work for free. I have a charger at home and have set that as the primary home location. If I charge at work or at a non-Tesla charger, how does TeslaFi treat this? Should I set work as a second home? I was thinking of using the Home location as a way to track my additional energy usage at home but I do have an app for the charger where I could do this instead.


I agree with all of this. Can we have a “Work” charge location? I am able to charge at work for free which is where I do 90% of my charging and I would like to have this factored into the “gas” savings I get when I charge at the office (and at home at the off peak price for home chargin)

yep I did just the same, but still charging at work is not really a „travel“ charge but rather a home charge imo. When I see the summary of „travel“ charges I don’t want to see my regular charges mixed in.


I had the same thought too since charge at work is also free for me. Here's what I did and it seems to take care of the cost.

From "Drive Summary" click on your work destination address. A window will pop up that you can edit.

  • Drag the radius of the circled area if necessary to include the location
  • Name: enter Work of whatever you want to call it
  • Cost per kWh: 0  

That's it, you won't see a charge when plugged in.


Here with the same issue, Work charges should not be tagged as "travel charges", I have set my home charge price to the amount I actually pay at home, but work is free and definitely not travel charges. I could set work as second home, but then the statistics get mixed up or I end up with my default (home) price value on work charges.

IMO "Work" should be another default category along with "Home", "Travel" and "Supercharging" charges.
