Did you have to talk to Nissan or AV to get this option on the Nissan Web Site?

Both. I went through the process Friday. I had to call Nissan to get the waiver button enabled, then AV to let them know to watch for the waiver and let me into the EVSE portal where I could buy the unit. Every step was fairly confusing. It looked like I was canceling my assessment appointment, which would have been difficult since it happened in July. And they only did it for some folks who "are getting their Leafs pretty soon".

If you've already done the Leaf request a quote and ordered, you don't need this second waiver unless you want to buy the AV EVSE w/o installation. I didn't need the first waiver because I already had the AV appraisal. If you're already on AeroVironment's 'cash and carry' list, you will be contacted shortly before your Leaf is delivered. Then you'd go through the process that Raptor and I did.

So, Feb deliveries that want an EVSE to install in 2010 apparently do NOT have AV as an option, right?

That leaves Clipper Creek as the ONLY candidate (as of today) for a December EVSE, right?

Gary, I suspect that you are right. But it'd be worth a call to AV to find out for sure. Maybe they really wanted to get ten or eleven units out to people getting their Leafs "soon", whatever that means. Or maybe they have some kind of milestone to meet re number of EVSEs shipped. I can certainly understand your concern regarding 2010 purchase... that's the only reason I jumped at the chance to buy the AV unit when Sarah called Friday. AV's number is 626-357-9983.

I also ordered my AV Friday- even though I wish I had another choice. I spoke to a licensed electrician in Glendale (Los Angeles County). His name is Kim. He said that there is another EV charger called EV something or other. If any of you are interested give Kim a call at (818) 446-0888. Kim also gave me the LOWEST AV install price of $480!

Take care!

Did you literally carry it out? If so did they charge shipping?

2 bar lost at 35,339 miles, 25 months.
LEAF traded at 45,400 miles for a RAV4-EV

Hello.
I purchased the AV charger and it is being shipped like all of you. My last post I stated that the licensed electrician named Kim stated that there is currently ANOTHER EV home charger for sale through another seller (EV something) AND available NOW! I imagine it might be the EV-Charge America which has not come through for me. If you are interested give Kim a call to inquire if it is EV-Charge America or not? 818) 446-0888
