This one does nothing but provide power. Even the "delayed charge" feature has to be set every time you want to use it, and gets reset if there is a power blip. I would be shocked (hah) if it had any additional features

Didn't you know? He parks and charges his EV in the pool! Therefore the pool controller contains an EVSE! :lol:

The MSRP is $1,200. A local company that sells Schneider equipment sold it to me for $750 before tax.

Yeah install is on top of that but you know it will be cheaper than AV's install quote! I was quoted $1,400 from AV for an uglier install (conduit all around, instead of using the attic space), and this quote was for.... $400-$500 (I changed something at the last minute, so I have to wait until I get the bill from them to be sure what the cost was)

That's great, Jason! Glad you got a good price. I wrote to Schneider, and they sent me a descriptive sheet that listed a $1,200 price for their EV2430WS. They suggested that I contact my nearest Schneider dealer to order one, and gave me this link: Schneider Dealer Locator.

However, after finding and calling my local dealer, he told me that the price on his computer was...$1,714.20! Nor would he budge on it, claiming that $1,200 would be below his cost and that he would lose money on it.

I therefore contacted Schneider again to report the price difference. Their response? That they "have no control over what price they sell these at."

Ouch. Guess I won't be able to go with Schneider at my location. Happy for you, though!
