ECOtality is unable to approve your participation in the U.S. government's EV Project for your home charging unit and installation.
of course, that doesn't mean that you still can't enjoy the benefits of driving electric. you may still be eligible for the Alternative Fuel Vehicle Refueling Property Credit - an income tax credit equal to 50% of the cost of electric vehicle recharging equipment (capped at $2,000 for individuals).* as soon as possible, continue the home charging process by contacting AeroVironment to set up a home assessment appointment.
Sigh...not surprising as I live in Albuquerque and not a roll out area (and my daughter who is also in line is in Mesa, AZ, but lives in an Apt...so she is out too)...but my home in New Mexico could be a good "ancillary" test location. Heck, attached garage, 200 amp new panel, subpanel with space in the garage (so easy peasy set up) and solar on the roof with broadband router sending constant status updates to the internet...and the car will be a low mileage daily commuter...a dream set up for ECOtality...
Oh well, there are so many benefits to living in New Mexico, I guess I have to accept the down side as well.
Now the question is...do I set up with AeroVironment, or do I wait and see if the prices drop come October with all the competition that is being announced?
ps...Azrich, good luck with your parrot...African Greys are so beautiful, so smart. A few years ago while hiking on the mountain our dog was bit by a rattlesnake...that was a crazy 3 mile run back to the car...3000 dollars later and she is healthy and happy and the most expensive pound puppy we ever had
