I just got an email inviting me to participate in the "EVERSOURCE’s (formerly NSTAR) electric vehicle rate pilot program entitled [email protected] Has anyone else been invited? Or joined? I have not yet read all the details. But this comes at an interesting time, when I am trying to get approval to install a charging unit of some sort at my condo. As part of the process, I keep debating whether to install just a 240 V outlet (cheap and easy) or to install either a Tesla HPWC or some level 2 charger made by someone like Siemens or ClipperCreek. (I posted another thread on that decision.) This program would give me a discount on a Clipper Creek charger. The purpose of the program is to help Eversource design a time-of-use plan. The charger has been modified to work with time-of-use metering, and is a "smart" charger than connects via a wireless signal to a data collection contractor. Hmm, just maybe the condo board could be persuaded that my ability to participate in this program would be a "public good" that might help them decide favorably to allow me to install the charger. (I have a different thread discussing some of the issues I have had on this.) The program is very limited -- only 105 participants. It would last a year, after which the charger would be mine and it could be used for time-of-use metering if and when that is ever implemented. The charger would normally be about $2500 because of its wireless feature and other features such as provision for time-of-use charging, and some other things. (But I was not convinced I need a charger at all, rather than a simple outlet, so I would not be considering such a costly unit. One potential disadvantage of the Clipper Creek charger: It is only for 32 amps. That should be sufficient for my needs, but it does not match the Model S's 40-amp capacity. It is not certain that a condo installation will comply with all the program rules. I'll have to study the fine print and speak with Eversource to be sure. But it would be fun to participate, I think. Anyone else involved?
