    IANAL, nor am I a tax accountant, but my understanding of the plain meaning of this part of the tax code and the IRS form is that there is a 30% credit for property placed in service to recharge EVs, up to $1,000, not to exceed one's taxes. I certainly planned on filing for my credit! This almost makes me wish that Tesla had lowered the price of the Model S by $500, then charged us the $500 for the UMC. I could have gotten a credit for another $150.

    I just noticed this myself. So it would apply perhaps for High Power Connectors?

    How about my purchase of an adaptor for my existing High Power Connector from Roadster to Model S?
