Hello all! We are expecting delivery of a Cayenne red SL in June, which was ordered at Gates Nissan in Richmond. They have a Red Leaf that we've driven around town, and there is a black Leaf at Glenn Nissan (Lexington) that I can see during my commute. Both dealers have one EVSE installed outside. Are there any orders - deliveries in the state of Kentucky, or will we be the first? We installed a Schneider L2 EVSE during a remodel, and are ready to plug her in!
I contacted Kentucky Utilities (as well as LG&E) about the EV electric rates, KU really tried to get us to keep our current rate of about $.067 kWh instead of TOD rates that range from $.045 (overnight, & all day weekends) to $.13 (peak). This is just a meter swap, not a submeter for the EVSE. I did the math and the three TOD rates average out to be about $.067, so I'm not worried about electrical devices that are difficult to time shift (fridge) and can easly shift TOD usage of others (HVAC and dehumidifier) We use wood heat in the winter, solar for hot water and the freezer, and a clothes line to dry in the summer. We both work, so really we would utilize the lower weekend rate. Anyway, we have not seen the new KU meter yet, and I was wondering if any Kentucky Leaf or other KY EV owners have had (or desire to have) the TOD meter installed?
If anyone needs to borrow a few hours on a L2 EVSE, contact me, I'm the chief engineer at WDKY Fox-56. Contact me BEFORE you head out on your trip to Kentucky, and I'll set you up with my cell phone number. We are right off I-75 and Exit 97, within 1/4 mile from the exit. The Nissan dealers in Richmond and Lexington are well off the interstate, and not really in easy walking distance to good shopping.
