I wish they would. They could even send out the Geek Squad to install ;)
Maybe they will. At Plug-in 2010 in San Jose Best Buy had a booth - sort of - that seemed to imply exactly that. It was a very pathetic excuse of a booth, though. Nothing but four poster boards lined up; no one there to talk to.

Geek squad = young kids ruining your home. They can't even do AV correctly I can't imagine AC.

Yes, most know that. So why is A key city like SF not part of the project while cities like Phoenix are? It is even funnier to see the Nissan CEO with the Sf mayor saying how SF will be a key player in the Leaf project and EV roll out.

BP perhaps works to redeem its image after Deepwater Horizon?

BP said it will install 45 high-voltage chargers at its stations, including at ARCO locations in San Diego County.

We have been through this once. Anyway, here is my take.

They wanted one city in each state. In CA - SanDiego was chosen because that is Nissan's home base. In some states they chose multiple cities to get enough people for the project (AZ, OR, TN). In CA they expanded to LA later as they got more money.
