Nice to see Home Depot supporting the EV game.

    My browser says the price is $449. Still, not a bad price.

    If you search for J1772 on their site, quite a few chargers and whatnot come up. Most you probably won't see in a store, but at least they are out there!

    Just as a point of technicality, it's not derated. Derating has very specific meaning in the NEC. In this case, the charger can be set for 12, 16, 24, or 32A continuous loads, which requires a circuit rating of 125% the continuous load.

    (The difference shows when you do have to derate.)

    Well, I could be pedantic and argue that the NEC hasn't completely co-opted the term "derate", but I understand your point.

    In my defense, however, the GE installation manual refers to it as the "Optional de-rate jumper." I was just copying their lingo without much thought.

    Home Depot has been selling EVSE's for a while now. At least here in the midwest though, they are only available on-line and not stocked in stores. I got mine from them online. I think that it is great that these are looked at as mainstream enough for them to stock them. Wouldn't it be great if the national code was changed to require pre-wiring for EVSE in all new construction, nationwide? That is another discussion though.

    Do you recall if this was actually sent from a HD warehouse? I'm thinking it is probably just drop-shipped rather than being something they "stock". Lots of online sites are listing items from other sellers, ala Amazon Marketplace. Not important, just curious.

    No, it actually came from Home Depot with a HD return UPS label. The reason I bough it from them rather than direct from the manufacture even though the price was the same is because I was able to use the shop through Chase portal for triple points for HD purchases.

    I bought my Leviton 40A EVSE from Home Depot in 2013. At the time, I went to the store and they guy told me they had pulled all the "car charger" inventory from the stores back to the central warehouse. From HomeDepot.com you can always get free shipping to the store of your choice and usually get free shipping to your home.
