Carlos,

I just received an email from Nissan telling me there was an update to my reservation and when I clicked on the link, it took me to my profile and I saw that I was approved for the charger. The same message you received.

My notation on my log in at Nissan site said same as drees....additional information is needed to determine if you meet the criteria, etc.....
So I am still in the running! Maybe it is because I said I don't have a smart phone on my survey. Hey, I will get a smart phone! I am in Los Angeles, CA

As I recall, they did ask about this on the survey. I remember thinking afterwards...Damn, I should have said yes to that one. We live in single family home 1940 vintage with detached garage which is used for storage. Charging would be outside....maybe that was the hitch...who knows? Like trying to read tea leaves...

That is the reason they want to check. What is your panel rating ?

My house is 2005 built, with a 200A panel and plenty of open slots.

I believe it is 100 amp service. We had the house completed rewired and upgraded when we bought it in 1992. There are extra slots.

I logged into my Nissan page just now to check if I too had an update on the status of my survey and found this comment;

you may still meet the criteria for the free home charger - see details So I hovered over the see details link to find this comment; additional information is still needed to determine if you meet the criteria... ECOtality will contact you in the next few weeks to review your survey responses…

I wonder if it has anything to do with me answering the survey honestly. My panel is on the extreme opposite side of the house from my garage, my main breaker is too small, my panel is already full and my house has aluminum wiring. SCORE! I think I have all the bad stuff going on. I’m just lucky that way.
