    • experiences
    • costs
    • installers/electricians
    • location (state,city)

    Very nice! Makes things easier on me.

    I strongly suggest that this be stickied.

    Toyota just announced the Leviton charger with installation at $999. http://pressroom.toyota.com/releases...d+vehicles.htm

    Says exclusively for Toyota but that will just be packaging if anything.

    EDIT: I may have jumped the gun. As pointed out to me in a different thread, it's not clear that the $999 price includes installation. We'll have to see what "special pricing" we can come up with.

    I'd add the EVSE upgrade. It's portable and supports multiple 240V plug types along with the 120V plug. http://evseupgrade.com/?2

    Good job, Britt1 ! Thank you for assembling this information.

    There is info on Level 1 chargers linked from the ChrisC FAQ, and some on the Voltec charger, but nothing like you have put together.

    Here is a link to the main Level 1 info:

    http://gm-volt.com/forum/showthread....3180#post53180

    I will ask ChrisC to link to your listing in his FAQ. If you find anything else, just edit your original post and the link will find that as well.

    You can find links to several other articles about chargers in the FAQ. The link to the FAQ is in my signature.

    Great...I am updating the first post with all these links.. I'd really like folks to post their install experiences and what they chose and why... There are many of us here and more in the future that are still deciding what level 2 to install so the information people have is invaluable now and going forward. Thanks Phil

    I just had the SPX ($500) one installed in my garage. It cost $500 for an electrician to install a 60A dedicated sub panel off my main panel. From that the SPX goes into it and room was made for another future 20A circuit. Also, they put in a dedicated 120V plug off the sub panel so there is no issue with the standard cord etc....

    I just had an Aeronvironment mounted on my garage wall. Had an L6-50 outlet already there, so we just put a plug on it to make it easier to plug the welder in when it's needed.

    I found it in the classifieds on MyNissanLeaf.com had to register to send a PM to the seller. Price was $600 plus $17 shipping. Ad is still up, I think there may be more of them available since so many over there have decided not to pay the high install costs.
