It's not huge. It's just not what is should cost, when the unit is less than $750.

For me it's not even the money, it's this stupid HOA paperwork I've been forced into.

That makes sense to me. I am not suprised if the quotes are lofty, especiall when they know you have to have the assesment and your "choice" made prior to ordering and that you are getting 50% back from the feds.

Why would you worry about folks that get a waiver?

Yes - I don't think there is any need to worry. I'm sure people who get a waiver are geeks who know how to manage ... it is unlikely they will then crib about either the difficulty in getting L2 EVSE / permits or about the 110V taking too long to charge.

I think they're mistaken. Bypassing AV is no big deal as far as I can tell and they're ignoring the fact that the 50% rebate is subject AMT so, some folks are paying full freight.

I found this forum recently.

The huge cost of AV's EVSE has been a big negative for me from day 1. Because of AMT, I would be paying the full cost of the EVSE (no 50% rebate). I can't imagine paying $2k plus to put in essentially a new circuit and an EVSE worth probably $500.

But now I see that there are other options available. I would be glad to take the waiver and have the EVSE installed either by myself or by my electrician.

We have two "custom" estimates at $1500 and $10,900, with most estimates being the "standard" $2100 to $2350 (or so).

Those with too-high "standard" estimates should ask Nissan for a more reasonable "custom" estimate from AV.

Those with too-high "custom" estimates should ask Nissan for a detailed estimate for their install job.

If AV is unwilling or unable to comply, ... their offer does not expire until 31 Dec, 2010, I believe.
