The process was smooth thanks to IES Residential Electrician out in Corona, CA. They have the exclusive rights to install all Leviton Chargers in Southern California and go far out as installing in Bakersfeild, CA.
I’m impressed by the 10 year warranty on the charger itself and a 3 year warranty on the cable. Other companies I hear offer as little as 3 year on the charger so 10-year warranty is very nice.
A hiccup that was not anticipated was to require the charger to hang on a wall stud. So the original placement on the right wall which made for a neater install would not do since there was only drywall. The result is a extra conduit that looks a little less tidy. I’ll porbably paint it white when I have time.
Installed is 30 amp 220V and the manual of the charger is here:
EVR-Green 320 Manual
An over the counter permit has to be issued for the install amounting to ~$180.
The total cost of installation for parts, labor and permitting is ~1800 and takes about 3 hours in my case since around 40′ of metal conduit was installed.
After the city verifies the installation, hopefully the process of getting the Honda Fit EV will be quick.
Going to get me a Honda Fit EV. Just got contacted by Honda and now setting up appointment to wire my garage for the charger.
I’m excited because I am one of the lucky 1100 people who can lease the Honda fit EV. This is after trying to get Tom Hanks plug-in hybrid prius. He had a nice car and I lost it at auction.
And considering the Nissan leaf which I did not really like because of small trunk space.
Anyways the Honda is the best of the three. After my lease is over I hope to get the Tesla model X. I love electricity!
