I signed up for the EV project but have not heard anything at all from them. I'm in the SF south bay area. Should I keep hoping? Should I have heard a peep by now?

You mean you got an invitation to sign up? It was never even offered to me (20 miles further south than you are).

Did you go to EV Project website and signup ?

Unless they add SF to the list of cities (like they added LA & DC recently) - you won't hear from them. People in the correct zip codes got a separate set of questions when reserving Leaf ... they are the ones currently in the run to get a free charger.
1st Leaf : 2/28/2011 to 5/6/2013
2nd Leaf : 5/4/2013 to 3/21/2017
Volt : 3/25/2017 to 5/25/2018
Model 3 : 5/10/2018 to ?

I didn't get an invite, just went to their website and signed up directly. How can they leave out Silicon Valley?

It is my understanding that there cities in the program must commit quite a bit so perhaps the bay area said no. It's a bit of a Joke that the bay area is not leading this.

It's as if they were just introducing the first gasoline cars and for some reason Texas wasn't interested.

The way it all worked out was that ecotality applied for the grant along with Nissan and a bunch of cities. We don't know whether they talked to SF and they didn't show interest or they didn't even speak with them. Ofcourse there is the utility angle as well.

Government/state level: the states of Washington, Oregon and Tennessee have all pledged their
support for this Project.

Government/county level: Hamilton County (TN), King County (WA), Maricopa Association of
Governments (AZ), Pima Association of Governments (AZ), and San Diego Association of Governments
(CA).

Government/city level: Tucson (AZ), Phoenix (AZ), Chattanooga (TN), Knoxville (TN), and Seattle (WA)
have also pledged their specific support.

Utilities: Supporting utilities include the Tennessee Valley Authority (TN), Knoxville Utilities Board
(TN), Portland General Electric (OR), Puget Sound Energy (WA), Seattle City Light (WA), Snohomish
County Public Utilities District (WA), San Diego Gas & Electric (CA), Salt River Project (AZ) and Tucson
Electric Power (AZ). These utilities collectively serve over 35 million customers.
