I got my AV EVSE installed on 11/9/10. Above are the links for the pictures. I was not able to load the pictures myself. May be one of the mods would help, I would appreciate that.
Here are the details:
Total cost: $2925.00
Custom Installation: $1863.00
As reported earlier, this involved trench work for about 30 feet and crawl space/attic work. Local electrical contractors had quoted just a bit lower price for installation.
There were 4 persons, who worked for nearly 5 hours to finish the work. City inspector came the next day and signed off on the permit. I was the first person to get this done in Roseville area. There was actually another person in Fair Oaks area of Sacramento, who got the installation by AV done on 11/8/10.
Testing equipment included a rectangular box measuring about 24x18x18 inches. There was lot of noise when simulated "charging" was started. I asked him if actual charging process would be that noisy, he said no.
On 11/10/10, I did attend CCSE workshop on Sacramento. There were presentations by EVCA, SMUD and of course by CCSE person. Charge Point America level 2 EVSE looked impressive but I told their rep that I never got any response to my emails or phone messages from their company and I ended up buying rather expensive unit from AV.
I contacted Nissan CS yesterday evening to get the receipt for installation of EVSE. I was referred to AV, who in turn told me that I was the first person to contact them for this purpose. They apparently didn't have system in place for this but promised that it would be available most likely on Nissan LEAF web site under the account by next week. I will wait and see and hopefully be able to print it online.
I have not done test drive as yet but am scheduled to do it in San Francisco on 11/20/10. I believe my delivery date would be sometime in Feb 2011, as my order date is 9/7/10.
