I'm having an electrician install a new circuit in my garage. I don't currently have a Tesla or other high powered car, but I might in the future, so I want to have the wiring capable of handling a NEMA 14-50 plug, so presumably 6/4-guage wiring.
However, currently I only need to have a 240v 30amp plug for some equipment, so I'm planning to have NEMA 14-30 plugs installed at the end. Is this allowed to be installed on a 50-amp breaker circuit?
I know that regular 120v 20-amp breakers are allowed to have 15-amp outlets installed. But I don't know if a NEMA 14-30 plug can be installed on a 50-amp circuit.
Alternatively, could I have a 30-amp breaker installed and then later upgrade it to a 50 amp breaker and a NEMA 14-50 plug myself without requiring any new inspections or permits?
