The actual functioning of the EVSE is not "inspected" at all, I believe. Just the "wiring-related" issues, loading, breakers, connections, grounds, wire types and sizes, etc. I think.

I found this in the current bill

SEC. 711. ALTERNATIVE FUEL VEHICLE REFUELING PROPERTY.

(a) Extension of Credit- Paragraph (2) of section 30C(g) is amended by striking `December 31, 2010' and inserting `December 31, 2011.'.

(b) Effective Date- The amendment made by this section shall apply to property placed in service after December 31, 2010.


.. so if the tax cut bill passes, EVSE's will continue to have the credit for next years tax return. No reason to rush out now (unless you need the credit for this year)..

Too late for me :roll: but I have to say, I suffered like most businesses this year: Pass the bloody tax code bill already, Congress, so we know what to expect for next year! And they wonder why recover is so slow!

Since Pres. Obama signed it, I presume the EVSE credit is extended to Dec 2011?

Well, our well-estemed forum support EVNow just tweeted it be law, so I'll take that as yes, the extension is enacted, and only a Fortnight too late, bugger it! What a pricey decision, but not being a gambling man, I'm satisfied I did and got an 80A EVSE to boot!

Oh, and I bet my letters and calls to Congressman Wolf helped!

Well, that takes the year-end pressure off for getting the EVSE installed (for most people).

According to the news, the tax credit was extended but the max was cut to $1000 instead of $2000.

Yes

2010: $2,000 credit max @ %50 of price

2011: $1,000 credit max @ %30 of price (pre stimulus level)

I joined the "Electric Auto Association" http://www.eaaev.org/ last night for $35 so I could buy the Clipper Creek CS-100 for $2550 + $50 shipping, will end up with a $1300 credit + a few hundred for my electrician to pull the permit and install (its directly next to the panel and I already have the 100A SquareD Homeline 2 pole breaker ready to go)

Even if the EVSE's pricing comes down, I doubt the high end 100A models (80A to vehicle max) will anytime soon, just that J-1772 connector + cable assembly has to be some big bucks.
