My electric company is offering up to $2500 rebate check towards a level 2 charge station install at home. You can buy it and setup install with a contractor, mail in papers to get the rebate. Or, they have partnered with Bosch to handle the paper work, bill them directly, and set up install - so up to $2500 and no money out of my pocket!! Best I can tell right now, these are my choices for the station: http://www.pluginnow.com/charging_stations I want to keep the install as close to (or under) $2500 as possible. Bosch rep said on the phone that wont be an issue. Brief rundown of my home setup: Power line is overhead and comes into meter on driveway side of house. Breaker box is in basement almost directly below meter. Meter is less than 10 feet from driveway. I also have a detached barn/garage. I forget what wire I ran out there when I put electricity in, but I know its rated for 60 amp and can be 220. Right now I have a 30 amp 110 circuit and 2 15 amp circuits off the box in garage. All I really need out there is one 15 amp circuit for some lights and misc small tools, or a space heater. They can also set us up with an on peak/off peak rates (for the car and the whole house): Pricing Table - Schedule of On-peak and Off-peak hours The following schedule applies to Monday through Friday (except holidays designated by Consumers Energy). Weekends and holidays are off-peak. Other charges may apply. Summer (June - September) Times Cost per kWh (approximately) Off-Peak Hours 11 p.m. - 7 a.m. 9 cents Mid-Peak Hours 7 a.m. - 2 p.m. and 6 p.m. - 11 p.m. 15 cents On-Peak Hours 2 p.m. - 6 p.m. 22 cents Winter (October - May) Off-Peak Hours 11 p.m. - 7 a.m. 9 cents On-Peak Hours 7 a.m. - 11 p.m. 13 cents Looks like all the rates are lower than what we pay now, except for the Summer On-Peak rate of 2pm-6pm. I think we'd do better on this plan above, but the Agent is already getting stressed about higher rate for 4 hours a day 4 months out of the year. Edit. Reread our current rates. Summer rates all day - 7am to 11pm mon-fri will be higher. I signed us up anyway. I think it will save us some money and if not, we aren't locked into the plan.
