Same here...used to see one or two a week. Now I am seeing one a day it seems!
LEAFs got so common they don't even wave back to you anymore! On a somewhat racist note, it's usually the Asians (including the Indians) who just don't give a damn :)

Um, for the TOU rates, the fuel surcharge is $0.048/kWh for on-peak times, thus pushing the on-peak price up to $0.25/kWh :shock: during the summer months, if I'm looking at these schedules correctly. TOU-PEV Rates TOU-PEV Fuel Cost Recovery

I got my TED, NEST, and many timers to shut off all usage from 2pm to 7pm. i can make ice at night and let it melt in front of a fan during the afternoon. it will be a battle of wills and wallets.

The last several summers we have been on the "cut back in the afternoon" Ga power program. I charge a SLAB with a solar collector in the morning and early aft then work my ham radio hobby in the "expensive time" strictly on battery. Now that I have a new LEAF, I will charge it late at night. We cut the A/C to the house during the "expensive time" and hang clothes on the clothes line and my wife's hobby is solar cooking (not the electric oven)- hey, we are retired - we have time to experiment. Your mileage may vary :-)
I feel this helps Ga Pwr, too, because it takes my load off the grid when they need it for others (sick, elderly, hospitals, etc).

Are there any existing CHAdeMO charging stations in Metro Atlanta (or Georgia for that matter)?

Anyone installing them now?

No functioning Chademo in Georgia yet. The best hope is that one will be installed at Atlantic Station, if GA Power will play nice. Blink is supposed to install 15 in the area, mainly at convenience stores, but it keeps getting pushed back. Nissan has a regional representative who is also trying to get dealers or others to install them.

You can find some discussion of it on the EV Club of the South Facebook Page.

GA Tax Questions

Fri May 10, 2013 1:02 pm

I put a $1000 down last month and have a $179/month lease payment for the next 23 months. Here is my lease math for the next 2 years:
April, 2013 - Dec, 2013: $1000 down plus eight $179/month payments = $2432
Jan, 2014 - Dec, 2014: Twelve $179/month payments = $2148
Jan, 2015 - March, 2015 - Three $179/month payments = $537
End of Lease Disposition Fee = $395

State of GA Tax questions.

1. GA ZEV Tax Credit = The lessor of 20% of the cost or $5000 tax credit is allowed for the purchase or lease of a new ZEV.

My vehicle "cost" to determine this State of GA Tax Credit equals the above lease costs, correct?? So, I get to deduct $486.4 (20% of $2432) from my taxes this FY (2013, filed in early 2014) plus $429.6 (20% of $2148) for FY2014 (filed in early 2015) plus $107 (20% of $537) for FY15 (filed in early 2016)? Assuming no sunset provision.

Will I get to deduct the End of Lease Disposition Fee too?


2. EV Charger = The lessor of 10% of the vehicle charger and installation cost OR $2500 tax credit is allowed for the purchase and install of qualified EV charger.

I spent $535 on the Clipper Creek charger. And another $1000 to install. Had to put in a new sub-panel and rearrange some stuff to make it work.

So, I get to deduct $153.5 (10% of $1535) from my FY13 State of GA taxes?

P.S. I don't fully understand that clause that states "In no event shall the amount of any of these tax credits exceed the taxpayer's income tax liability."

I typically get a small refund from the state of Georgia. Last year, I owed state of GA around $6k and had payments/credits of around $5k. Leaving me with ~$1000.00 refund from State of GA.

If everything remains the same, I should expect my State of GA Refund to increase approx. $639.9 (486.4 + 153.5) - right??

Hi Sonnylax-
Congrats on the Leaf Lease. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised to learn you should get the full $5,000 tax credit. The credit of 20% of purchase price up to $5K is based, for leases, on the capitalized cost. So as long as the capitalized cost is at least $25K, you get the full $5,000. It's not, as I thought once too, based on what you actually pay out of pocket for the Leaf.

I can attest to this as I've already received by $5,000 for the Leaf I leased last November.

Although you have to file by paper for the EV credit, I received mine in about 4 - 6 weeks. Much faster than those who submitted in 2011 and had to wait about six MONTHS from what I hear.

As for the tax liability statement, that just means that you have to pay at least $5,000 in taxes to get the full $5,000. If you only paid $4K in taxes, then you'd only get $4k for the credit. I think you already figured out that it's your tax liability and not your actual refund.

As for the charger credit, I don't have the details in front of me, but I recall it was only for COMMERCIAL chargers. I don't think GA gives you a credit for one you install in your home (but I might be wrong).

Is that $179 inclusive of all the fees and taxes? Is that for a 2013?

Note here though that the credit does carry over for up to 5 years, so if you can't use all of it this year, you can use the rest of it next year.

I've not looked closely at GA, but I'm pretty sure you can get a federal deduction for 30% of the installation of the charging station.
