This thread is to collect info relevant to those buying Virginia. Please add any helpful info or ask any relevant questions. The info that I've collected so far is: * VA doesn't give sales tax savings for trade-ins so no benefit to that. Probably better to sell your old car yourself. * I found these firms that do HPWC install: Ryan Electrical Services 301.509.9832 [email protected] Mister Rogers Electric http://www.misterrogerselectric.com/ 571.249.2716 [email protected] Got Electric 301.515.8676 [email protected] http://www.gotelectric.net/ * Tesla suggested Alliant Credit Union Here is its application: Alliant Credit Union- application for financing Model S My questions are: * Any special tricks with getting the clean fuel HOV plate transferred? I have an old style plate that is still good on 395 and 66. But it is really old and dirty. Can VA DMV issue a new one? I've heard that when you ask for a replacement plate they often screw it up and issue the new limited style. * Other than the license plate any special VA tax credit or other incentive for EV or HPWC install etc.? * Penfed is popular in this area for low rate auto loans -- has anyone used them to finance a Tesla? * What is the best setup with Dominion Virginia for charging cars? They have a complex rate schedule https://www.dom.com/residential/dominion-virginia-power/customer-service/rates-and-regulation/residential-rate-schedules Has anyone deciphered this and concluded what the best deal for them was? Any other tips from Virginia Tesla purchasers? Thanks.
