I was helping a new potential Volt owner research charging options today. I just noticed that SPX has announced a NEW incentive program. Apparently they are offering up to an additional $200 discount on installations.
While some customers have complained that SPX did not meet their expectations... I have to say that SPX was an outstanding deal for me. I received a FREE CT-500 charger + TOU meter installation + license fees and all associated installation costs at NO COST. I paid NOTHING in my case. (Your situation may be different.)
I suppose I could have bought a basic Voltec L2 Charger for $500 and hired a local electrician to "hack" in my installation. But I was planning for the future. The Voltec is limited to only 20 amps. That's Fine for a Volt... But what about my next EV? I also wanted a time of use meter installed so I could take advantage of the full discounts offered by my local power utility. If I had hired a local electrician to file all of the permits and install the meter can + pull the new service into my home + install the CT-500 charger it would have likely cost me several thousand dollars out of pocket. Now I have a superior 30 amp charger with full usage tracking and accounting... For FREE.
Even with my complex condominium power situation... and my preference for a separate TOU meter... SPX delivered the entire job at NO COST. I paid NOTHING.
Keeping in mind that each city and local code requirements can vary a lot... I believe SPX still offers an excellent solution for many EV customers. With a NEW additional $200 discount I believe it's an even better choice for new EV customers. Anyone considering an L2 charger installation should contact SPX and see what offers they have available in your local area.
