Actually in most cities they do care about the EVSE. Here they insisted on it being fully installed, which caused me problems because I hadn't closed escrow on the house yet, and was still using it at another address. The builder had installed the circuit, but couldn't get the inspection signed off until I dismounted my Blink, lugged it over to the new place, mounted it on the wall and plugged it in. Luckily, I had an EVSE upgrade to use in the interim.fhammond said:Great!
The other two things I'm wondering about are city permits and tax rebates. I'm assuming the city cares about the circuit the electrician installs and not the EVSE, and for the tax, I assume I just need the receipt from the purchase of the EVSE (and perhaps the electrician's work). Any thoughts? I realize this varies city-to-city.
The upshot is that if the electrician just says they are installing a 240v circuit on the permit and doesn't mention an electric car, then the inspector obviously won't look for the EVSE. This is what most of the EVSE Upgrade people who have circutis run do so they don't have to explain the upgrade to a city inspector.
