Hi, I'm getting my new, 2018 Leaf SL next week and I am having trouble figuring out EXACTLY what specifications are required for the double pole circuit breaker and 240v outlet. I would like to be able to charge at the max, which I believe is 6.6kwh. I've tried very hard to find a post with a clear and concise answer, but most threads I've found relate to upgrading existing 220/240v outlets.
To be clear, I would be thrilled/appreciative if the following could be answered concretely, as I'm having anxiety regarding getting this installed before I bring the leaf home. Mind you, I don't know anything about electrical work, but I want to be able to make sure a hired electrician is installing the correct equipment.
1. What amperage for the double pole circuit breaker? 50 amps?
2. What NEMA rating for the outlet? 14-50? AND is a 250v outlet ok? That seems to be what home depot/lowes sells.

3. What gauge electrical wire?
Thanks again in advance. I did spend about 1 hour searching/googling. Honest!
EDIT: The search function works a lot better in these forums than google. I think I found my answer, but if anyone feels like answering here it would still be appreciated.
