Curt Till: The electrician was way off base on a few things but whatever!!!

ferkemall: And your electric bills went up by ??? appx $500 for a charger plus installation plus tax + ?? + summer in a hot state = all the airconditioners on plus EVs charging what happens when you get a power cut ?

Eban Tapia: Is there an adapter that will allow the left to adapt to the Tesla charging stations?

F Antoni: How can one charge in a quick charge station (for Mitsubishi i-Mieve 50% in 15 minutes).
Which types of plugs there are for this quick charging stations?.

Alan Saldana: U

Alan Saldana: An electrician is charging me $300
To Install it . Is that a right price ?

Riad Ahmed: Volts is not dangerous unless escaped high amps volt is a gun and amp is bullets ....

Riad Ahmed: And zero brammo Empulse as well .

Riad Ahmed: New jobs just beginning by tesla and rimac success .

CharlesinGA: Some mis information in here. For example, the EVSE is a very glorified switch, incorporating Ground Fault sensing, and handshaking with the car. It is not an appliance and does not require a separate disconnect. Article 625 of the National Electric Code specifies that disconnects are only required if the circuit is greater than 60 amps.

gnomaedh: Great job!

Kenz300 x: Electric vehicles are the future..... it is time to end the oil monopoly on transportation fuels.......
Climate Change is real .... we need to deal with the cause or we will deal with the effect........

Nobody YouKnow: The cost of EVSE boxes is a scandal.  Maybe $50 bucks worth of parts.  couple of relays, a very dumb circuit board and a cord.  My clothes washer has a half dozen boards that are far more complex, and the most expensive of them is about $100.

Clearly, it is quite simple to provide either a hard wired connection to an EVSE or a suitable outlet and wiring and circuit breaker in a main or sub pane1.  Of course anybody with an electric dryer can fabricate and extension cord.. and bobs your uncle.

chuckwalla: Nice.  Wish my commute was shorter, so I can go electric.

Carlos Zavala: Love that sticker ;)

hectortoledo5914: actually not a relay is a contact that is normally open then normally closes when there is a appliance 

Humes Mike: Pretty sure #4 wire is overkill for a 40 amp circuit. That's probably why you had a hard time getting the wire into the breaker lugs. #8 THHN is the proper size. Good for 55 amps. #4 won't hurt but it's a waste of money, especially if you have to increase the conduit size, fittings, etc. to accommodate the larger wire.

Refuso PissedO: Southern California Edison has two 'special' plans for EV owners.  Neither makes sense for us, (Spark ev) because one uses one meter, but has caveats associated with your other appliances, and the 2nd rate plan requires a 2nd meter.  The install is too expensive so, just go solar, run on the sun.  We've been following solar for a long time, the changes come fast.  My gate and front lights (led) run on small test platform systems, but deciding on a configuration is like Peyton Manning reading the defense, on the run.  In the last two years or less micro-inverters, AC panels (same thing), mppt controllers and a range of inverter options have opened configuration doors for us.  335 days per year of sunshine, someone said.  Basically now we can scale up or down, monitor what's going on with each panel, re-direct solar electricity from sending it to Edison's grid, or using it to charge our EV. 

Refuso PissedO: How about the can of gasoline just to the left of his 220 Volt grid, on the floor?  The half empty ones make the biggest explosion/fire wave.  But he's ready for that with the 5/ 8 firecode gyproc, or wasn't that installed yet.....
