Thanks for the advise but I have called all of the suppliers that have "free" programs and none support where I live. In fact, our utility (FPL) recently started an EV pilot program and offered those members a free charging station, but the program is full. That's OK. I can afford $500 to get the Voltec charger, and we are handy enough to run a new outlet to the carport. It would have been icing on the cake, though, to get one for gratis instead. Oh well... such is the life of a bleeding edge early adopter (even though we're on the 3rd Volt model year, I still consider it early adopter material).
