    That's a really generous offer. I may look you up on my next trip to Tucson to visit family. Thank you!

    Would you be willing to post that on PlugShare?

    Hmmm, why is the voltage at 277 rather than 240? My location is normal 240, though I have seen 250 now and then.

    The new HPWC is rated to work at 277 V. This voltage is available at some commercial sites in North America with three phase power [as is 208 V]. The chargers in the car have always been able to operate at 277 V, but before the new HPWC was released, there was no way to supply the higher voltage to the car.
