Yes, a simple tax credit, I stand corrected.

I have 2 car garage and gave up L2 charging.
If I install 2 dedicated 20A GFCI sockets for Leaf L1 charging this year.
Can I get tax credit for parts and installation for none AMT tax return?

Only if that includes the installation of some type of EVSE.

This is for free Nissan EVSE.
OK. I give up EVSE tax credit for 2010.
Thanks for reply.

I am seriously thinking of purchasing a second L1 charging "cord" (with EVSE) and leaving it semi-permanently attached to a 120v outlet on a dedicated 20A circuit. By "semi-permanently" I mean it will in fact be plugged in to a wall socket, but unplugged as frequently as my refrigerator is. It seems to me I should be able to get the tax credit on the second L1 EVSE and the hardware (subpanel, breaker, wire, etc.) for the new circuit. I'm doing the installation myself.

Actually, I've already bought most of the wiring hardware, and will be running 240V to the subpanel, so I could upgrade to an L2 EVSE later if I want to. I've put out some feelers on getting the L1 EVSE.
End of April 2013: Traded my 2011 SL for a 2013 S with charge pkg.

I would like to make a list of EVSEs with J1772 connections that can be delivered before 31 Dec. Clearly the AV units have shipped according to this thread, but have any others? Will any others?

I mention it here because the idea is to gather a list of EVSEs people can buy if they absolutely feel they have to by 31 Dec to get the tax credit; so here is my list:
  • Aerovironment: Only shipping / installing to "initial" markets (TN, WA, OR, CA, AZ), cannot be bought outside this region yet.
  • Leviton: EVB22-3PM expected in January -- too late; EVB45-3PD a few months later.
  • ChargeAmerica: Some have ordered, none have received; maybe early December but maybe vaporware.
  • GE: No price yet, never mind unit
  • SPX: Available in early 2011
  • Voltec: Only available to confirmed Chevy Volt orders
  • Blink / ECOTality: Currently only available to confirmed participants in the EV Project -- nice life if you can get it, if you get it won't you tell me how! :)
  • Coulomb: Price not yet available, never mind unit
  • ClipperCreek: Mainly makes custom units for Tesla, Mini-E; their J1772 unit is currently going for about $2000.
Did I miss anyone?

EDIT: Fixed SPX typo; linked to SPX specific thread, not the combined Voltec/SPX thread.
EDIT: Updated Clipper Creek info.

SPX not SPK, and that incorrectly links to the Voltec EVSE, not the SPX 32A EVSE.

I thought that the Clipper Creek EVSE was over $2000 and available?

Thanks and fixed. Not sure why I'd confuse a K for an X, but thanks anyway. Do you have a link to the CC unit? Their site is woefully remiss of product lists. :o
