The draft says level 2 evse needs to be hardwired. Can someone point me to the exact language of NEC that refutes this ? I plan to formally send comments on this before the meeting and time permitting attend the meeting (looks unlikely).
Requires a dedicated 40-amp or higher breaker on a 240-volt circuit with a GFI, such as those required for ovens or dryers. A wall-mounted charging station assembly will be required. (EV charging stations are “continuous load” devices as defined by the National Electrical Code. The contact points for typical 240 volt outlets, such as those used for dryers or ovens, are not designed for continuous loads, or for repetitive plugging and unplugging as would be normal with EV charging. Plugging a vehicle directly into a 240-volt outlet is considered hazardous and is not allowed under any circumstances.
