EVSE Home Assessment Scheduling is Live!

Wed Jun 16, 2010 6:57 am

Logging into your account, you can now schedule your home assessment. Dates start in late July. Unfortunately, it would appear there is a $100 fee that we're on the hook for:

One thing to note though - it looks like the fee is more like a non-refundable deposit. The details say that the fee will be applied to the purchase of the home charging dock installation. So as long as you are definitely going to do the installation you won't be losing/spending anything extra.

Another piece of information I don't recall seeing before (my emphasis):
AeroVironment Inc. is the Nissan recommended partner certified to conduct the assessment and install the home charging dock for the Nissan LEAF. You are under no obligation to use AeroVironment Inc. in this capacity. Should you elect to use an alternate installer, please call 1-877-NO-GAS-EV.
Is anyone planning on going with another company? Part of me feels like I should "shop around", and the rest of me says "nah, let's just stick with Nissan on this - there are too many 'new' things going on here to mess with it"

Any know the breakdown of the cost of the charger vs. the cost of the installation? I think the total cost is supposed to be about $2200?

If the installation pushes into 4 figures, I'd think shopping around would be good - how hard can it be to install a 220V device. Likely you could do it yourself if you understand a little about wiring.

I suppose it's possible it will go live for folks based on their zip code and whether Aerovironment has actually lined up installers in that area.

Someone should ask Nissan about this in a live chat. :)

I don't know if I've seen anything "official" - I thought the unit itself was less than $500. I am expecting my own installation to be less than the $2200 that is being tossed around - I already have a 220 pre-wire connection in my garage, so the installation is probably just going to be putting in a little bit of conduit and mounting to the wall.

Probably - me personally I do not like messing with electricity. Just one of my personal phobias. I realize it is 'simple' stuff, but I would just rather it done right and I don't trust myself to be able to do it right.

I will install it myself if they'll let me, but I imagine it would be hard to obtain one.
