I don't object to a separate thread for PG&E or other Cal. utilities for the purpose of discussing tiers, rates, installation, etc. since so many first-time buyers will be using them, but please don't abandon the regional threads. There are a lot of commonalities among Bay Area buyers, for example, besides the utility. I'll want to know what other local forum members know about charging stations, dealers, local incentives, etc. around here, not in Redding or Sacramento. I even think there could be some social activity when we get a few owners in the area. Maybe some central location like Fremont, which is probably within Leaf distance of most of the Bay Area, could be the site for a picnic or rally of sorts where we could get together and exchange experiences next spring. My point is that utility areas are too big to be the only divisional separators.
