I just received my Residential Participation Agreement via email today. I read it a couple of times and nowhere do I see a clause that would require the participant to refund any of the installation cost should he have to discontinue his participation in the project. Did I miss it or would they just remove the charger and call it good?

When I read the agreement, I came up with that same conjecture.

As many Leaf deliveries are now pending, I want to pose this question in the EVP thread. When are the public EV Project EVSEs going to be installed and up and running?

Here in San Diego the EV Project has promised 1,650 public L2 EVSEs. The original date was June, but I heard it slipped to September. This is a extremely tall order to pull of 1,650 installations in 6 months.

Did they make these similar promises in other markets (i.e. AZ? WA?)? Does anyone have any info if they'll make it?

Does anyone have a zip code list for the EV project areas I assume that's how they determine if you are eligible. I ask because I am wondering if Aptos, CA falls under "bay area." 95003 zip.

From their website: "The Bay Area Air Quality Management District is the public agency entrusted with regulating stationary sources of air pollution in the nine counties that surround San Francisco Bay: Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, Napa, San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara, southwestern Solano, and southern Sonoma counties."

I assume these are the counties eligible for the EV Project, so Santa Cruz county is not included.

Well the EV Project has been going for about a year and a half and Ecotality has roughly 50 residential installations to show for it. Zero, zip, nada public infrastructure. They are subcontracting everything out so they should be able to scale, especially in this economy. I can't get anyone to confirm if they have even been pulling permits for public infrastructure.

I just received the call from the electrical contractor to install my Blink which we scheduled for March 28th.
My LEAF delivery date has bumped around a bit but stands at Week of April 12th, for the moment.
It's a good day today.... ;)

Lucky that things are coming in the correct order. It looks like I'll have my Leaf within a week, but have not had any contact yet with the Blink Network's electrical contractor. So I'm expecting to be on L1 charging for a while.

Did you get an email 7 days prior to delivery, as I keep hearing? I am also waiting for both the LEAF and Blink install. Have not heard from an electrical contractor either, but my delivery date is now about mid April.
