Yes. Apparently, the city I live in won't approve a simple electrical permit unless they have ridiculous levels of supporting docs. It's CYA on steroids.
That is where a plug in evse works. Can't be a big deal to just install an outlet. Tell them it is for a welder if you must.
I am not sure why so many get their jumpers in a bunch to plug in an silly appliance.
But therein lies the problem with the city of Oceanside.....they don't seem to care if the plug is for a welder, a dryer, or a recessed can light. 18x24inch drawings signed by a draftsman and engineer are required, among other things. My neighbor built a garage separate from his house....for just basic 110v outlets and fluorescent lighting, same thing....detailed drawings, signed, etc.
The sad part is that if Oceanside doesn't back down a bit, EVP will pull out of Oceanside, so any future Leaf owners may be semi-screwed.
