Default Separate circuit plug for central vac: necessary or not?

The builder is charging me some amount to install a separate circuit plug for the central vac in the garage. I don't understand why a "separate circuit plug in garage at central vac location" is necessary.

I've read a few threads but there's only one mention that I saw about a separate circuit and no explanation why this is necessary. In my current home, I have the central vac connected by an extension wire to the existing electrical plug.

Am I missing something?
