Noticed you got your AV EVSE installed on Nov. 2nd. Did you use the AV contractor for the install or did you have an independent contractor install for you and only ordered the EVSE from AV.
Yes, AV sub's it out to various folks, turning on where you live. Our contractor was Aliso Electric because they're just a couple miles away. Being their first, it took 3 hours (he had to leave 2x to go get extra goodies). If you order one directly, AV has already stated NO one can, util all contractor installs are done. I'd guess the rational is that they want to do right by their subcontractors and customers willing to pay the high(er) price first.
Regardless of who installed were you pleased with the final results and how does the tax rebate work for half the cost up to $2000. Did AV supply you with a form to complete or is it merely a tax application when you file your tax return for 2010? Did you hear from anyone else in the Nashville area that has had an EVSE install as of yet?
Yes, we're glad it's in and of course the up side of AV is the promise of quick turn around/repair/temporary replacement if the unit fails during the warranty. Down side is the $2K total price. But since 1/2 is picked up via tax/credit money, it's not too bad. Other manufacturer's prices were as expensive as AV's unit WITH the contractor's fees ... or even 4x as expensive as AV's bare unit.
AV gave no help with the forms, but being an attorney, forms & processes are no big deal ... I already got that issue dialed in/taken care of anyway.
"any one else in Nashville" ?? wait .... that's MY question
From the folks that replied here, I'm guessing just public/business installs are done so far ... either that, or any one who HAS taken care of their home install hasn't read the thread.
