Re: Electric Vehicle Charging Station

There is a current deal with the power company to install a second meter and allow time of use billing for just the car. The rate is better but the increased labor to modify the wiring to allow for that would make it a really long payback period. I'm getting the charger for free already.

As far as the need for 240v charging, I'm getting a full charge overnight but there are times when I come home from work and then want to go somewhere an hour our 2 later. The 120v charger just can't provide any significant amount of charge in that time period.
