is it really as simple as showing them you have a duke electricity account?
I hope it is an immediate discount, not some crazy rebate.
My biggest worry is how much prices will fall on pre 2018 Nissan Leafs' after the Gen 2 is announced. Might seem like a good deal now, but might turn out to be about average in six months.
Yes, I emailed my salesperson a PDF of my latest Duke Energy bill. That was all there was to it. I signed one extra form that said the dealer keeps the rebate and in return they lowered the price by $10k on the spot.
Yes, I'm sure the next-gen EVs coming right around the corner will have a big price on today's vehicles, no doubt about that. OTOH, I'm sure we won't be seeing any incentives other than the FTC for any 2018 MY vehicle.

Trying to figure out if I can write it off as a business expense and get the $7500
. It appears so, will have to do some more research on that.
You may already know, but if you lease the vehicle, you will get the full $7500 credit in the form of lower lease payments, regardless of your tax liability.
EDIT: I just read the fine print (emphasis theirs):
Nissan is pleased to extend a special incentive of $10,000* off of the manufacturer’s suggested retail price to all eligible Duke Energy customers who PURCHASE a LEAF from dealer inventory.
So perhaps that is incompatible with a lease.
