Poll : What is your AV qoute ?

Wed Sep 15, 2010 8:10 pm

With 60 pages of posts this topic has gotten too big to read through for an overview or to get a price range. I seem to recall one quote around $6,000 or more, but other than that I think my $3501 AV quote was the highest. Apparently I can't start my own poll. Can some admin create a poll with a range of dollar values for the AV quotes so we can see how the distribution is? I suggest:
$5000+
$3500-4999
$3000-3499
$2500-2999
$2250-2499
$2000-2249
$1800-1999
$1500-1799
<$1500

How about 5 weeks and no response. I even called them 2 weeks ago and they said that they would put a rush on the proposal.

I got the same BS on my appt reschedule and the revision of my quote to be done in two days max, now on three weeks and no change. I'm just waiting to cancel and get a refund.

Perhaps add to the poll, if possible:

1. Cancelled before Assessment
2. Not having AV Assessment

Then, I could "vote" #2 above.

I think the highest quote was over $10,000 ...
but maybe I am not remembering correctly.

Quote will not matter. AV got their $100 and that will be it.
I would only buy the EVSE if they gave credit for the $100 and I understand that will not happen.

One thing about the quotes...should AV be blamed for the high prices? When i spoke to AV about the details before my assessment was done, they said they work with licensed contractors (this is what happened too). We know that the cost of the device is ~~$700. So it seems that the variation in price seems to be due to the different installation costs from the contractors.

Am i not understanding how this works properly?

Contractor cost is certainly a variable, but I do not believe it is the major cost. My "standard installation" (just the installation line item) came to almost $1,300. I called a different contractor, and he gave me an estimate of $500. Even with whatever AV is charging for their extended warranty, I seriously doubt that most of that $1,300 is coming from the local contractor. I would imagine that AV is taking at least 1/2 of that installation charge as pure profit, if not more. Heck, I'm not even completely sure that the contractor got most (or any!) of that initial $100 we gave AV.

Admittedly, this is all speculation. I do not believe that we've heard directly (or even second-hand) from a contractor on what they are charging AV vs what AV is charging us.

Ah. I didn't take that into consideration.

Though, (more speculation here), they're probably taking a relatively consistent cut from the contractor, so i'd be interested to see if the wide differences in price (2500 vs. 3500 vs. 5000+) are due to AV or contractors.
