My $3500 AV quote is too high. The main reason for that is the 100 ft. wire/conduit run through the attic from my main panel. But I have an unused 220V clothes dryer socket already in the garage. It's not on the wall I would like, but I am willing to use that side if it saves big bucks. All this talk about AV, Blink and Leviton has my head spinning. Does anyone have a clear answer as to whether an existing 220V socket (from some time in the 1950's or 1960s, probably) can be used with any Lev. 2 EVSE? If it makes a difference, the existing wiring is Romex, not in a conduit. I don't know what current code is or whether a permit is needed for all of the EVSE's. I don't care whether I can get maximum current through it, as my alternative is Lev. 1 only. Is this something only an electrician can determine for sure? I understand they would all need to modify the socket itself to put in the hard-wired portion, so my question really goes to the wiring, I suppose, i.e. avoiding the 100' conduit run.
