Phil in Houston. Reserved the SL level, currently blue but I haven't decided on what color I really want. Never owned a silver car, so maybe that one.

I'm in the Heights, too. East Sunset, to be specific. Very blue collar.

NRG (Reliant) offering home and public charging with a twist:

http://www.dallasnews.com/sharedcontent ... aad47.html

I automatically dislike this, as there's a monthly fee that's unrelated to usage. But I do understand they need to pay for these things. I'm just not going to need public charging away from my home, unless I'm heading to Galveston or something, and I doubt they'll cover that with chargers.

On the plus side, it looks like they're making a massive push for L3 charging... if those 15 minute charge times are true.

Actually the more I think about that article, it doesn't sound too bad.

$2200 (average EVSE cost? or minimum? we'll see) divided by 36 months (contract length) is $61/mo. Might be worthwhile, especially if you get to keep the EVSE at the end. At the very least you'll have the installation paid for.

Interesting for sure. Though, with the EVSE you get 50% tax credit.

If you do 1000 miles a month - and pay $60 a month for charging, that is just 6 cents a mile compared to 15 or so cents I pay now (with a $3 a gallon for gas and 20 mpg car).

The "energy" at home might be included (about 9¢ per kWh here), but the local PU's "delivery" (distribution) charge can be 25¢ per kWh additional.

Difficult to see how it would work at home. Perhaps requires a separate meter install (which might require a service upgrade)?
