Obviously if they will accept a proof of compatibility they they can't really mean that only AeroVironment can be used. In that context, this doesn't bother me at all. Clearly, AeroVironment has already given Nissan a proof of compatibility. Naturally Nissan would expect the same from anybody else.pgrovetom wrote:I have been told by Nissan that ONLY the Aerovironment EVSE may be used and received an email saying "I must provide proof of compatibility of any other EVSE".
Now this is an outrageous lie! The government does not care who manufactures the EVSE, so long as it is UL certified, or who installs it, so long as they are a certified electrician, or what vehicle it is used for so long as it is on their list of EVs.Aerovironment told me I could only receive the federal tax credit if I used them.
If you have documented evidence of such a statement it should be given to other EVSE manufacturers so they can initiate a lawsuit against AeroVironment. It should also be given to the IRS, since they administer the tax credit.
